Same here;  kdesu prompts for the root password then bails when trying
to start synaptic, kpackage, file-manager_as_root, etc.  This started
several days ago after an 'apt-get update' and continues through an
update I did last night which appears to have updated all the kdelibs
installed on this machine.  I haven't found a solution yet. (Also,
entering user password has no effect)

$> uname -a
Linux rocinante 2.6.18 #1 PREEMPT Mon Oct 23 23:31:50 CDT 2006 i686

After last nights 'apt-get update' -> debian etch testing.  kdebase
4:3.5.4-2, kdebase-bin 4:3.5.4-2+b1, kdelibs4c2a 4:3.5.5a-1, kdeadmin
4:3.5.5-1, kde-core 5:4.7.
