And I had chosen "Turkey" during installation. The environment was all
Turkish in KDE, yet the Country=C. This was when Admin mode worked.
Then I've done several changes here and there (one of them was changing
Country to Turkey), installed few packages, few upgrades, then Admin mode
stopped working.
In kdesu dialogue I noticed the --lang=tr and got a hunch, then changed
Country to C, retried kcontrol Admin mode, and voila! It worked.

Maybe *if* en_US is the default language for Panama, then your pristine
installation is based on English, and changing the Country in an English
installation has no effect (maybe only affects non-English installations).
If default language is not English for Panama, then I've no idea why your
experience was different than mine.
