kdesudo and the config problem

There is never a case to run "kdesudo kate /someFile".

Use "sudoedit /someFile". This uses root to copy the file to /tmp, you
then run the default editor (hopefully kate) as yourself, then
whenever the file changes you copy the file back (as root).

Not really answering the question/real problem, but making sure people
do this makes the problem less bad.
