I've built a shell script for mounting ISO images in Nautilus, and it worked fine in earlier versions of Ubuntu. One of the many problems encountered in 11.04 is that gksudo doesn't seem to cache the credentials - There are three commands in the script which need to be run as root, but now for every command I get prompted for a password. Sudo privileges are cached when using plain sudo, so why not with gksudo?
