Description mattm3a 2011-06-15 18:36:26 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0)

knetworkmanager requests access to kwallet to connect to unsecured wireless networks (network has no password). This is unnecessary. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Disconnect from wireless network
2) Close kwallet connections to applications and close default wallet. 
3) Connect to unsecured wireless network

Actual Results:  
knetworkmanager attempts to open kwallet and prompts for kwallet password. 

Expected Results:  
knetworkmanager should connect to unsecured network without prompting for password.
