Thanks for the report.  But I can't recreate that problem here.  Using
su as root does not ask for a password.

It sounds like something is broken with your installation of the
program.  Since RH uses PAM and PAM is actually where the
authentification is happening it might be a PAM problem on your
machine.  That is just a wild guess.

Perhaps someone else on the bug list can make more useful suggestions
about how to debug your problem.  I am at a loss.
