OK, my last posting was written while I was experiencing a tad of frustration.  I Googled, jumped on an IRC channel and tried just about everything, including reconfiguring every package known to man.  I finally found a bug that resembled my exact trouble:

“Administrator Mode” button in “System Settings” does not work properly.

Simply the fix was:

kdesu kcontrol

I had ran kcontrol several times with sudo, but the problem was never fixed.  Running kcontrol with kdesu cleaned up old dead DCOP server files.  Something more than simply deleting he files.

Happy? No not yet, I still don’t know what provoked this.  It may not have been a package upgrade.
