This is a result of the hack we use to support root-only configuration
modules, and setting the root-only flag is in turn a workaround for
system-config-printer-kde really needs a better fix for this problem.
system-config-printer already supports PolicyKit, I have no idea why this is
not working in system-config-printer-kde, I guess it's supposed to call
some functions and doesn't.
Kevin, thanks for your info. Aren't the modules "Date & Time" and
Screen" already using PolicyKit?
