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

Will they be backporting the fix to 9.04?  I have other issues that
prevent me from upgrading to 9.10 on my laptop.  The only time I use
sudo is if I'm working with a file in a restricted folder (/etc or
somewhere like that).  If I'm not supposed to do this, then please
explain how to edit a file in a restricted folder, when 1) I cannot log
in as root (because Kubuntu/Ubuntu has the "root" account locked by
default) and 2) I am not supposed to use sudo or kdesudo to open the
editing file.

Personally, I hate VIM and EMACS because I've never really learned how
to use them properly.  It's much easier to open the file in Kate or
KWrite and edit it there.

I'm running KDE 4.2.4 on Kubuntu 9.04.  The computer is a Toshiba
Satellite A105-S2194 laptop with 1.5 G of RAM.

Thanks, and have a great day:)
