SU for KDE doesn't work

When I try to run a program or change settings that need root access KDE brings up a text box for "kdesu" asking me to enter my root password. Everytime I do, it tells me incorrect password, even though I know I typed the right password. Any ideas why this might happen?

I'm using KDE 3.2.2 on QT 3.3.2 and XFree86 4.4.0, on 2.4.26 kernel, if that helps.

This bug, along with others, is logged HERE:   http://www.kde.org/info/3.2.2.php

It's a problem with kdesu/kde.    

I think these kinds of things are sliding by more and more, as GNOME is the default- and therefore more widely used, X-Window manager.......
