Comment 33 for bug 366398

Some tests:
- the problem isn't dbus, that is autolaunched, even if I kill the dbus processes, I will get new dbus processes, like:
root 12355 0.0 0.0 21128 904 ? Ss 11:09 0:00 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session
root 12356 0.0 0.0 30224 844 ? S 11:09 0:00 dbus-launch --autolaunch d2f223773c984c89331a62fa493ee8fd --binary-syntax --close-stderr

- kdeinit4 will not start, that's the problem:
ps ux | grep kde
root 13136 0.5 1.0 211816 22192 ? Sl 11:11 0:00 /opt/kde4/bin/dolphin
root 13870 0.0 0.0 5284 812 pts/10 S+ 11:13 0:00 grep kde

The PATH contains kdeinit4.

Now the interesting is that "kdesu konqueror" works, it starts the kdeinit4 for root and after that kdesu dolphin works as well.Probably sometime in the past I run a root process that started kdeinit4, this is why it worked. Sorry for confusing you David.

Here is what I have after starting kdesu konqueror:

ps ux | grep kde

"kdesu dolphin" doesn't output anything on the terminal...
