Can't run apps as root in KDE


Am having problems running KDE apps as root. To reproduce:
1. Open the KDE Menu Editor
2. Setup a new app item (for example, copy and paste Konqueror to Konqueror-2)
3. Goto the "Advanced" tab and check the "Run as a different user" checkbox
4. Type "root" in the username box
5. Save changes
6. Run Konqueror-2 from the KDE Kickoff Application Laucher.

Konqueror-2 shows up briefly in the applicaton panel at the bottom but it doesn't run.

Any ideas? Thanks
