gedit as root now locks desktop hard

Again, after a bunch of tweaking, I needed to edit a system config file, 
so sued, and ran "gedit file.conf &" and the desktop locked hard.  Only 
option was a power off via the switch.  I rebooted and after logging in, 
just opened a terminal, sued, and opened gedit and locked hard.

This was working nicely before I did all that tweaking.  Perhaps one of 
the extensions or how do I look for this.  It is too painful to test...
