Bug#444491: gnome-power-manager: policy timeout error due to weird check foreground result

Package: gnome-power-manager
Version: 2.20.0-1+b1
Severity: important

Triggering any power managment event gives me this notficiation error :
"Action forbidden
Policy timeout is not valid. Retry in a few seconds"

Enabling debugging and starting it with --no-daemon leads me to this :
[gpm_control_is_policy_timout_valid] gpm-control.c:128 (05:47:49): check-foreground-console returned with 1

This so looks like a libpam-foreground issue (I am the only user of the
box and there is only one X session thus check-foreground-console ought
not to fail). Please redirect this bug report if you see fit. I wanted
to know if we could disable this test until libpam-foreground was fixed

Best regards
