Hi Tim,

FWIW, another related diff between my old Debian systems and Trinity+Squeeze
is the way that konsole starts a root shell.

In Debian this is "su -".  In Trinity it is the Ubuntu-ish "sudo su -".

We change our Trinity konsole's config to use "su -" since we don't use sudo.

I don't see any problem with trinitizing kdesu (in kdebase-trinity-bin)
and kdesudo.
