I’m having three password dialogues coming up at completely random times. The openSUSE installation is new, less than a week old, as is the laptop. The dialogues are an XMarks login, one that says:
Authorization is required to refresh the system resources.
The third says that System policies prevent me from changing the screen brightness.
These come up completely randomly, sometimes when I’m using the computer, sometimes one is there when I come back to the laptop after a bit of a break.
I don’t know whether this has anything to do with it, but dmesg | tail shows a segfault on the last line:

The “refresh system resources” dialogue came up twice while I was typing this post. I give it my password each time. I can’t find anything definitive in /var/log/messages, though I can see the instances where it asked about the screen brightness and I refused the password, because I haven’t had any need to adjust the screen brightness. Where else might I look for clues to help solve this?
