I have no problems with KDE 3.2 on gentoo (OpenSSH_3.8p1) and SUSE 8.2 
(OpenSSH_3.5p1) using "ssh -X" as normal user so I don't think this is a KDE 
relatated problem (did you upgrade anything else?). Have you tried as a 
normal user, using an explict

$ ssh -X normaluser at remote

googling for 'ssh "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key"' reveals a lot of possible 
reasons, which mostly deal with ~/.Xauthority, xhost, su, X 
no-listen-tcp, ...
