Some of the kdesu bugs may have been fixed, but unfortunately no one has
had a chance to work on the others AFAIK.  We are after all only human,
with day jobs and other responsibilities to get in our way. ;-)

I have decided to go ahead with the release in the hopes that the
significant improvements may attract more developers, to avoid the project
appearing dead, and to allow us to move to GIT (which may also help
attract more developers).  This release is not perfect by any means, but
it is still an improvement overall upon its predecessors.
