<Riddell> This seems to be an issue since we uploaded Qt 4.7, apps running as root don't pick up the widget theme

Commenting here as well since the bug I commented at has been marked a duplicate of this bug.

Affected are Lucid with Kde 4.5.0b from Kubuntu backport repositories as well as current Maverick Alpha 3 with Kde 4.5.0b.
For *all* Kde applications running as root using kdesudo (systemsettings, Dolphin, whatever else) it's the same: they always have only the Oxygen style, as you cannot set a different style for Kde apps running as root in kdesudo systemsettings - the preview of other styles works fine, but when you press "Apply", *nothing* happens - the style is never applied, it's always stuck at the Oxygen style.

I have filed bug report #619519 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdebase-workspace/+bug/619519), which has been marked as a duplicate of this bug (Bug #600646). But I think they are two separate issues. What ever is fixed in package qt4-x11, does not address the problem I stated in bug #619519. That is. when I issued command "kdesudo systemsettings", and then changed the widget style to QtCurve from the default Oxygen, I would still get the Oxygen style the next time I issue commands "kdesudo systemsettings" or "kdesudo dolphin". I don't know about other people, but I do run dolphin as sudo from time to time to make changes to my system and I like to have dolphin themed like it does under normal user.

I can confirm this. The fix for this bug does *nothing* to fix bug 619519, so it has to be considered a separate bug. I have therefore removed the wrongly marked "Duplicate" status for 619519.
