kinternet has a problem

It will not (apparently) call wvdial so will not establish an Internet connection in the normal way when logged in either as user or superuser. The only way I have found to establish a connection is to run wvdial as root and when the message 'connected' appears to logout from root and login as a user. The connection is of course broken but having logged in as user, after some seconds kinternet(?) dials out and establishes a connection wihout my intervention.

Note that the connection in root is not terminated using Ctrl-C and no program is invoked as user. Can anyone suggest what is going on and what the cure is please?

I have re installed Linux 8.1 (and kinternet) several times. Wvdial is v1.42, Kinternet is v 0.45 and the environment is KDE 3.0.1
