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.
