Bug#404156: /usr/bin/kdesu: Should show message if root privileges obtained via sudo without password

Package: kdebase-bin
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-2
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/kdesu

kdesu can use sudo to become root.  If sudo does not require a password,
then kdesu will proceed to run the target program as root with no prompt
or message.  In this same situation, gtksu brings up a message box
informing the user of the privileges granted without a password, with
the usual "don't show this again" checkbox; kdesu should do something
