Have you tried the python script linked below on that same website? It seems to be targeted to controlling the daemon. (I don't have access to a debian-based machine ATM to try it myself though).

comment How to invoke root privileges from a password prompt of “Software Update” window?
Are you sure? I used fedora from when version 12 was release up to version 15 (so it's been a couple of years now). I recall "yum" works that way, but I only used the GUI once. Does the GUI work differently from yum?

Does this apply to all startups, or just reboots?
