Which version of the AccessGrid RPM have you got installed? The problem you 
describe is supposed to be fixed with AccessGrid-2.3-4.i386.rpm.

You can find out which version you have installed by running:
    rpm -qa | grep AccessGrid

The Gnome menu ServiceManager-Debug file:
  /usr/share/applications/AccessGrid/ServiceManager-Debug.desktop :
now does:
  Exec=/bin/sh -c "AGServiceManager.py -d; sleep 2"

which wraps AGServiceManager.py in a shell to prevent the terminal from 
closing and also puts a 2 second delay before closing the terminal so you 
have a bit of a chance to see the error messages.

You can also have a look at the AGTk logs in the following directory:

'killall -9 AGServiceManager.py' might work or you could do a 'ps -ef' 
followed by a 'kill PID' where PID is the process-ID of the running 
AGServiceManager.py process.
