Terminal doesn't do root windows anymore. It just opens a new tab as root.

To clarify, no UI code runs as root at all.
Which is a good thing from security perspective, but we can't effectively tell which tabs have root and which do not (without having root ourselves, that is). So this is probably not happening for Terminal.

Wait, I lied. We could use some strace trickery to accomplish detecting root child processes in terminal. It would slow process creation down though.
