This is how I have worked around this problem.  I have Konqueror set to 
open with root privileges.  I did that by editting the menu and setting 
it to open as root instead of my user.  When I need to change a setting 
that requires me to be root, I go to settings:/ in Konqueror and then 
navigate my way around to where I need to go to edit the configs.  It's 
not as pretty as the regular menu but it is running as root and so far, 
nothing is grayed out for me.

By the way, I was running into that grayed out stuff too.  I use Gentoo 
here.  Gentoo is a source based distro and not a binary based distro.

I hope that will help until they get things to working like they 
should.  Maybe one of these days anyway.  ;-)
