Is there any easy fix for this ? apparently no kde program (at least not 
konqueror in this case) can be started with kdesu -t in KDE_3_1_BRANCH 
because of the owner rights of /tmp/mcop-<username>.

I think I figured it out.
The villain is /tmp/mcop-"username".

Although I removed it it got rewritten with owner username.username when I
restarted KDE.  The solution was to first start KDE, *then* remove it and
then do "kdesu -t konqueror".

Now /tmp/mcop-username is owned by root.root. I wonder if this really is the
way it should be?

Another problem is that after a reboot mcop-username is again  written with
username.username ownership, i. e. removing the relevant files/directories is
only a temporary workaround!

Thanks for your help,
