GKSU Probolem

I'm now running an alpha release of Lucid, and notice that the 
oft-mentioned problem where Orca stops talking once I enter my password 
for apps that need sudo still exists.  Will this be addressed in Lucid's 
final release?  Is it enough to go into the 'administration' section of 
main menu preferences and substitute "sudo" for "gksu" in the properties 
of items like "synaptic package manager", for instance?
I work around the problem by either running such apps in the terminal 
with "sudo", or by starting the app in question, entering password, 
closing the app, then immediately reopening.
