I'm afraid this is intentional. Running Dolphin as root was deemed too dangerous due to security vulnerabilities. We are implementing PolicyKit support so that you don't have to run Dolphin as root to edit files owned by another user. That's tracked by *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 179678 ***

As for the other apps, kdesu is not supported and its use is discouraged. It's not surprising that it fails.

Awesome? The PolicyKit KCM GUI is no longer there, so I cannot really concur at this moment.
