I  can launch apps requiring admin access (kdesudo) from krunner without a 
problem. I don't use knetworkmanager, so I don't know about that. I have 
noticed that the suspend command from the shutdown dialog doesn't work. For 
me however, the largest problem is the lack of a working lock screen. well 
rather, a unlockable lock screen. :D
