Bug description:
Chapter 6, 'Introducing sudo'
Page 123

In the example of sudo a graphical application is used (gedit). As far as I know using sudo with graphical applications is dangerous and I was told to use gksudo (for further information: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo).

I think that a non-graphical application might be better as a example.
