Description of problem:
The Authentication Indicator always seems to'reserve' space in the KDE system tray.
The First Screen shot is on loading X (before opening anything requiring root password)
The second screen shot is upon opening system-config-* (a badge appears)
The third screen shot is the system tray properties, the Authentication indicator is there in the left coloumn regardless of whether or not a badge is shown, allowing root access
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Stock FC4 - 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 KDE 3.4.0-6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot KDE
Actual Results: There is a blank space in the system tray which cannot be filled
Expected Results: No space used by the authentication indicator unless 'root' acccess is allowed, in which case the badge should be shown.

The System Tray Properties
it seems the ksmserverrc in you $HOME/.kde/share/config/ and
/usr/share/config still includes the pam-panel-icon entry. You should please
delete the pam-panel-icon entry in both files.
You should do it before login into KDE!
It's fixed in new kdebase in rawhide. Thanks for your report.
