I'm not sure what the original poster's problem is.
s-c-auth worksforme.

system-config-authentication runs for me on my rawhide synced box
both from the menus and from the terminal.. no oddness.. it asks for
root password via the standard consolehelper password dialog and then
displays the gui.
rpm -qf /usr/sbin/system-config-authentication
on a 32bit smp system.
