Bad looking fonts as root

When I'm running KDE admin tools such as kuser from the menu with root 
password (given to kdesu), the fonts look pretty bad. I've 
removed /root/.kde and after recreating it, copied my normal user font 
settings (.kde/share/config/kdeglobals) there. The fonts set in this 
file are vairants of Bitstream Vera, but the fonts as rendered look 
very different. Either they just are different fonts (bit maps?) or 
they're rendered very badly. When I run kuser with sudo from the 
command line, the fonts look fine. Any insights are appreciated.
