unetbootin wrapper hangs at startup.

Additional info:
package version: 625-1

Steps to reproduce:

start unetbootin. The windiw appears gray without any elements. After the window close there thrown a window with an errors.

The problem is, that pkexec does not forward environment variables. That means, that

export QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1

at the start of the wrapper-file has no effect.

The workaround ist to change the pkexec line to the following:

pkexec --disable-internal-agent env QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY /usr/bin/unetbootin.elf $@ 2>/tmp/_polkit_error
