Interesting idea.

Did you know that you can, if KDESU is working, use the Run Command 
widget to run: "kdesu systemsettings".  I found this useful till KDESU 
quit working.

But, what I am trying to do is figure out why this doesn't work.  If a 
distro has it working, I want to look at their patches.
