Problem resolved.
I wasn't expecting to find another text editor under the 'Actions' menu for 
editing as root.  10 years of working with kde 3.5.10 and earlier using 
konquerorsu had me confused as to why 'Open With' kate, kwrite, etc wasn't 
able to save as root as earlier konquerorsu versions do.

I must learn to look in unexpected places when what used to work no longer
