Quoting from a recent thread on  
<http://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/2005-April/000251.html>:  
  
"1. Went to Kuser and deleted root. Kuser didn't mind accepting my request  
and happily deleted root (a bug, IMHO). It asked whether to delete also the  
home dir (/root) and mailbox (/var/mail/root).  
  
2. In another pop-up dialog it asked whether to delete the user's private  
group (root). I let it delete also the root group.  
  
3. System busted. Nothing sudo related works. "
