Just so you know, removing kdesudo-trinity does get kmenu "run as a 
different user" working, thanks. :-)

But at the same time my Squeeze install with kde4 has the kdesudo file 
installed and does not have the "run as a different user" problem. :-(

And something is going on that's causing a 15min sudo timeout, that is 
not the Debian Way, root passwd should be asked for each time elevated 
permissions are needed and something besides the sudoers file is causing 
this and I don't know what it is, what ever it is I want to kill it.

Just thought I'd let you know.
