Summary and Info:
Add/Remove Software Pacman GUI times out sudo authentication whenever the window is closed. It should instead time out the authentication after an appropriate number of seconds, regardless of how many times the GUI is opened and closed.

Steps to Reproduce:
Open add/remove software gui for pacman. Install something that requires authentication. Type your password. Install package. Close and immediately re-open. Install something else. It will prompt for password, even though the authentication hasn't timed out.
