bleachbit(as root) hangs, sets up log-in loop


This may only apply to my installation of Chinese distro Deepin, but the consequence is of interest, and the easy way out may be of use to someone who is stuck.
Deepin is a Debian>ubuntu development, so far as I can tell.

Consistently, when I run bleachbit (as root) from the Deepin launch panel, the scan phase has eventually greyed out the panel & bleachbit has stopped responding.
I should add that this is without the free_space option (though I do wonder if process time-out is set too low)

Non-root bleachbit is fine.
