[Bug 378394] Re: KDE Crashes Whenever I Edit A Text File with Sudo

Technically it is indeed true that one should use kdesudo, but one can
use sudo, that also worked until 4.2.3, so technically it is a
regression and in fact, it really is one. So the regression outweighs
the you-should-use-kdesudo-invalididation since the former is real and
technical and the latter is only technical but not real.

Really, don't try to understand that :P

Anyway, I don't like this being marked invalid, since it _is_ a
regression, and I am quite sure upstream would not have this invalid
either. Also, this regression most likely got a much more important
cause than just having sudo fight with the environment. Starting the app
should not invoke startkde, that is for sure, yet it does, so something
is horribly wrong.

Someone please forward this report upstream, or mark a possibly already
existing one.
