I'm sorry I don't know very much about desktop environments, but if I
interpret your description correctly, what this button ("Administrator")
seems to be doing is adding the user to the sudoers group.

That suspicion is reinforced by the fact that formerly you were asked
the root password and now the user's password. BUT... desktop environments
have sometimes their very own funny ways of doing things.

Perhaps someone with more clues on desktop environments can chime in.

Have you tried the "Advanced" settings?

Again -- if you start a terminal as a normal user, what is the output
of the commands "id -G" and "id -Gn" (those print the groups that user
is member of: the first by number, the second by name)
