Description David Anderson 2006-05-25 16:52:32 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs
OS:                Linux

kwalletmanager has an option "Hide system tray icon when last wallet closes", which I have checked.

However, if I log out before the last wallet closes, and log in again, then no wallets are open, but kwalletmanager still loads as part of my session. And it never hides itself.

As a consequence, sooner or later, kwalletmanager becomes a permanent part of the session until I quit it manually.

Suggested fix: kwalletmanager should not start up in the new session if it has this option selected.

It looks like this is causing a couple of problems on Debian.

kwalletmanager will not show a wallet on system restore, even after a wallet is opened:

kwalletmanager crashes on logout:

Just put a patch in trunk and branch.  Does that help?

Do we have a regression here? I'm running 3.5.4 and kwalletmanager does not show while I do have the option to stay open after all wallets are closed. In order to make kwalletmanager 'work' (that is, show itself) I need to kill and restart it now...
