Issues on Squeeze

I noticed some of these were already mentioned, though not fixed or  
answered, so far as I can determine.

KDM -- won't allow me to shut down, reboot or much of anything else except  

Kdesu -- refuses to accept my root password. I have to jack around to  
setup the X auth for root using the commandline.

KWifiManager -- If I launch from the commandline as root, it does find a  
network, but the wrong one. I can't get it to let me select my in-home  
wifi connection. It lists it for a scan, but I see no means to make it  
select it. From my user account, I can't do anything with it at all.

This last one is a show-stopper for me. If I can't connect and configure  
on the fly wherever I go, the DE is useless. So, what would you need from  
me to diagnose this?
