Can't run Root Shell?

I'm running a GIT version of TDE.

In the Panel Terminal widget button is an optin called Root Shell. When I select that option I repeatedly receive an error message that the password is incorrect.

This is not a path problem because the same thing happens when I use the full path of /opt/trinity/bin/konsole --type su.

I have no such problems using tdesu or starting a normal konsole and then using su or su - to login in as root.

Can anybody confirm this behavior?
