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
BOFH excuse #318: Your EMAIL is now being delivered by the USPS
