i can reproduce this issue on my machine too.
Michal, could you please try the new kdebase-4.3.4-4.2 package from http://karlsruhe.str.redhat.com/rhel6/ ? This issue should be fixed in this new package
The kdebase-4.3.4-4.2 version fixes the issue with non-responsiveness,
but if the password dialog is canceled, the apply button is still disabled (which shouldn't be).
Please fill the "Fixed In Version" field and flip the bug to MODIFIED next time you need verification so proper workflow is ensured.

that the apply button is still disabled, is another bug and we need a separate bugzilla report for this. Could you please fill a new bug? thanks
The no-responsiveness issue is also fixed in this package.
This issue was proposed for RHEL 6.1 FasTrack but did not get resolved in time.
It has been moved to RHEL 6.2 FasTrack.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Prior to this update, the System Settings application in KDE became unresponsive when entering a password in order to apply changes in the About Me dialog. With this update, the bug has been fixed so that entering a password works properly.
