Yes, it works fine using "/usr/local/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu -u username -c
xterm" where username can be any valid user, including root.
Incidentally another workaround for running X applications as any other user,
including root, without needing xhost or copying .Xauthority is to configure
ssh to support X11 forwarding in ~/.ssh/config and run "ssh
username at localhost".
