gnome-shell / CTRL-ALT-F1 + System Settings + shutdown (pwd asked)

Hi all,

I encounter some strange things under gnome-shell right now. I tried to encircle the issue a litl bit but so far without much success.

1) fully - updated (except kernel + header + tm_smapi) due to kernel regression  under sandy bridge -->  running 3.5.6

2) running vmplayer 5.0.1 host=arch-linux guest=12.04 ubunutu and win7

3) gnome-shell + gdm + systemd (still in mixed mode) but rc.d array is empty!

4) the encounter is random. and it started with a, than i realised b happens at the same time and c as well, but a was the start encounter.
    a) i cant switch to any tty with ALT+CTRL+F[2-7]
    b) unlocking any settings in gnome-shell is greyed out
    c) shutingdown the system is requiring the user PWD

- due to (a) i expected the Video driver to be the issue so i switched off any 3D settings in vmware, no gain
- (b) was leading me to believe it might be a different issue with a dead service unit from systemd. so i took a snapshot of working (see snip at the end)
- (c) was checking my polkit settings but they all seem fine.

So my question. what could cause all three things to fail. loging out and relogin solves the issue, but i cant shutdown te VM's all the time :-)

ALT-TRL-F1   PLUS     greyed out settings      PLUS    password asking?

it seems i have some authoritative issue but i cant figure out where it should come from as the behavior is random. and not appearing specifically during any action...

2 days might not getting any error than 5 times in 30 minutes.

any ideas?
