Hi Dan,

Do you have many users?
When I loged in as the unpriviledged user I was able to su from a shell into 
my super-user identity (su superUserName). But from there I couldn't kdesu  
or do important changes. 
No matter which way I tried either the password was wrong or the server 
refused the connection or I got a message similat to yours. 
I didn't check if there was a special syntax for kdesu to cover this case 
(perhaps you should) , instead I simply started a new session as the 
priviledged user.
