Details

Description:
When stbd is started, all users, regardless of group, are granted access to administrate the system.

Additional info:
* stbd is started when a gnome-system-tools program is run as root.
* gnome-system-tools programs cannot run without stbd running.
* system-tools-backend is at version 2.6.0-2.
* gnome-system-tools is at version 2.22.0-2.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Start a gnome-system-tools program as root, e.g. users-admin.
2. Close it.
3. Start a gnome-system-tools program as a normal user (doesn't matter who), e.g. users-admin.
4. Access is granted.
This task depends upon

That is strange. I am going to take a look at it. Any suggestions?

I confirm this bug. If a user want to use users-admin and all the programs in this package, he must add himself to stb-admin group but as Hyperair said, he have the power to use "user-admin" to add or delete all the users and groups.
If he does not add himself to the "stb-admin" this problem is not present but he cannot share folders via "shares-admin" or with nautilus (right-click -> shares-folder) and the little hand in the icon that show that a folder is shared does not appear.
I remember that this package works well when i was in ubuntu maybe we can use a patch of the ubuntu package (http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/system-tools-backends), the user must insert the password to share folder (maybe it is better to allow users to allow folders without password) or to add/remove users.
Sorry for my bad english. I hope my comment will be useful.
