That's probably it, Most likely I hit <alt>+<F2>suT
where I have an script in my path named suT

#! /bin/bash
kdesu konsole

Which I like better than su at the "konsole" command prompt because I
set up different background colors for my root account, And NOT having a
"paper" background in a konsole window reminds me not to use it
genericly...

Actually if you happen to know how to get kdesu to start with roots $PATH
do let me know... It's interesting to note though that while it doesn't
set $PATH to roots login path, It does set $HOME to /root, and uses roots 
terminal color settings...

But as far as the script goes, it's a moot point as long as I can
remember the interactive sequence...
