I have ran into that before. Usually it is because a kdesu process is
running but not responding. Either logout or kill the process and it
should work. This is the command I use to find it:
ps aux | grep kdesu
I then just kill the process that shows up. Sometimes if I do it fast
enough, it pops up.
I think we are running into the same thing.
