Bug#265323: DCOP-Server: Running a KDE program as root causes the next start of KDE to fail

Package: kdelibs-bin
Version: 4:3.2.2-2
Severity: normal

Open a shell as user <user>, su to root, and start a KDE program like
konqueror, will change the ownership of the /home/user/.ICEauthority file
from user to root.
I'm not sure, if this is intended, but it ends up in a big 
problem: the next time when trying to start KDE at this user,
it doesn't start, because the dcopserver has no write-access to
the .ICEauthority file.
KDE shows a error message telling about this permission problem. 

I saw this problem already at KDE 2.2.2 in stable.
