Some things I noticed when using kdesu to open Kate.

1. In the password dialog box there was no check box to remember the password.

2. For my root user I have Kate configured to use a pink background rather than white. That serves as a simple reminder I am working as root and not as a normal user. Yet in Trinity, after launching through kdesu, Kate did not display the background as pink but white. Superficially that seems to indicate Kate inherited the normal user's properties rather than root's.

3. After running kdesu to open Kate, I continually received DCOP error messages of the effect that KLauncher could not be reached via DCOP. Basically I had to restart my desktop session thereafter to launch apps.

Comments? Confirmations?
