  policyui.py crashed with DBusException in call_blocking()

Status in screen-resolution-extra package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: screen-resolution-extra

  This happened after I unchecked 'Mirror screens' and clicked Apply.  I
  was presented a dialog explaining that in order to do this, it had to
  increase my 'virtual screen area'.  I clicked Authenticate, and was
  given a password challenge.  I entered my pw, but it seemed to not
  respond well.  It hung for a few seconds, then the Mirror Screens
  block came up in the upper-left side of the screen.  [see screenshot]

  I rebooted and performed a full update, tried again, and it is
  repeatable.  Can't get dual screens to stop mirroring.
