I have same issue in SUSE10. After many times loged in as root suddenly lost that option. Of course I did log in trough console shell and startx gives me KDE normally. However when wish to close KDE session many strange messages came back to console shell and finally lost posibility to type in anything into console. One of last messages was that x server is killed.

Attempt to start new session Ctr+Alt+F2 and login again in order to poweroff machine how I could kill previous unmanagable console shell.
Also could power off trough remote terminal connection what is basically the same.

I believe that try to lock root KDE login has no much sense. One who working in linux, should be aware of danger. But it is much easier use yast and make other settings and switching to console window to execute some comands, then work from console all the time. E.G. editing some scripts in different cfg files is more easily using Kwrite then VI in most cases. Also when doing something often we need internet browser and information like this to search for. I am happy when can copy and paste "sausagelong" comand from browser to console shell comand line.
