This is not a mistake.

OpenSUSE will remove the patches at some point.

Running an entire graphical session as root is no go.

This can be addressed but not reverting the change.
Did you read anywhere in this thread that there is a need to run a GUI as root?
Not you didn't.
Those of us that are "complaining" are "power users" (not noobs) and
are only looking to be productive. By assuming that we all need to operate at some
nonsensical lowest common denominator, you have seriously reduced our productivity.
I personally resent being told how to operate. If that was OK with me I'd still be
Sure, make it impossible to start the GUI as root. I haven't done that since RH 4.
However, I do need to interact with system level files as part of getting my work done,
and the latest changes to the GUI (KDE) I use to get work done is now working against me.
Because someone wants to protect noobs?
