I mean exactly the other way round.

If I started synaptic 5 times in a session, kdesu would not ask me for the
password (if I had checked "keep password").

But, regarding the frequent situation: first launch the firewall, then
synaptic, and then a Konsole as root, I have to enter the password three
times in a minute :-)

That is why I find this behaviour illogical: within the same application,
the password is chached, but if you run another application, you have to
reintroduce the password.
