Since Ubuntu likes to replace kdesu with kdesudo, and in KDE 4 kdesu is not in the path by default, I'd like to rule out we're actually seeing a kdesudo problem, here.

Could you do the following: Start an app needing admin priviledges from the menu as described in the report. Do not enter a password, yet. In the terminal, identify the path of the called su-programm using
# ps axf | grep "su"
(or something like that)
Now try
# /the/path/you/got --version
on the results, and post, here.

Please also compare this to plain:
# kdesu --version
