Description of problem:
The root password is not accepted in system administrator mode. The
German translation is "Systemverwaltungsmodus", i.e. the mode where a
normal user gains root privileges via kde-su.

When I am asked for my root password, I always got told it is WRONG,
altough it is definitely correct (I can logon via SSH and console
using it). I do not use special characters in this password.
