Bug#611272: Can't run KDE apps as root (Alt+F2)
Can't run KDE apps as root
To reproduce: Alt+F2, type Dolphin, then click on the "wrench" in the "Run Dolphin", then check "Run as a different user" checkbox, enter the username (root) and password. Dolphin starts seemingly with the same user's privileges instead of root's, no error message or other indication is given that something's wrong.
