failed to attach to process in root terminal


Hello I posted this question in the suse forums but no answer and it's really been bugging me. when I try to run dolphin or the command cat in the terminal as root the terminal just hangs and when I monitor the input and output I get the message "failed to attach to process 8008" or whatever number corresponds with that process. I don't even know where to begin with this one...but any help at all would be greatly appreciated as this is all I do day and night now and it's driving my girlfriend crazy. thanks

Obviously we need more details -- is the root session with the local or a remote machine, is it across a LAN or WAN, what commands are being issued, what process, and so forth.

well yes I'm logged on as root through (su) but it's not a root shell (su -)dolphin works under root shell but the cat command is still a no go, and it's a local machine and it doesnt matter where its lan, wan, or no internet at all I still get the same results. and the commands being issued are dolphin, cat, iplist, and qtconfig are the ones that come to mind at the moment.
