You're absolutely right. For some reason, my command-line
option within krunner had disabled itself. Turning it on again
makes kdesu usable from krunner.
OTOH, I see that to run an app as a different user or with a
different priority, rather than Alt-O (Options) I now have to
click on krunner's settings icon, then click on the krunner
command line option settings icon ... and then ...

No no, of course not. But the graphics bugs popped up at the
same time as KDE4. It may be happenstance - like the annoying
keyboard and mouse problem relating to xorg's upgrades - so I'll
go hunt down an earlier intel driver and see if that fixes my
graphics artefacts problems.

This would be sad, as it's still a very competent editor. With
netbeans' future now a little dubious, it might even get some
kind of resurgence in interest amongst KDE types.
The bug - embarrassingly brief summary (sorry!) - that I reported
is at : http://bugs.debian.org:80/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=523551
Lisandro seemed to be suggesting that this resolution was
quite workable. If the package has been orphaned, well,
that's a far bigger problem of course.
