Considering that I was going to need a couple of apps from testing anyway, I decided to upgrade to testing/wheezy. After upgrade the procedure described above worked fine from the very first time, konqueror runs as root without any issues.
Not sure why it didn't work in squeeze. Thanks to everybody for help.
