Here is what the bugzilla guys say on this:

============================================================================
Use /usr/libexec/kde4/kdesu to start apps as root in a non-root session.
The
KDE 3 kdesu (which is what /usr/bin/kdesu is) is known not to work for
KDE 4
applications, and running X11 apps inside su sessions has never worked
reliably.
===========================================================================

I've been running "X11" apps as root in non root sessions forever.

Why do we have KDE3 packages causing us trouble in F10 ?
