Version: 1.1 (using 4.00.00 (KDE 4.0.0) "release 2.2", compiled sources)
OS: Linux (i686) release 220.127.116.11-0.3-default
I'm running KDE 4 apps from a KDE 3.5 session. Dolphin doesn't seam to remember passwords for a long time. After installing kwalletmanager it still doesn't seam to help. In fact, there are zero saved passwords in the wallet!
*version should be KDE 4.0.0 from openSUSE 10.3 packages.
I can confirm this bug in KDE 4.0.2 using SuSE 10.3 packages; it does not even work in any way when running KDE4.
This is really annoying, i ever have to respecify my password and username for kopete, kate (ftp) .... would be really nice if that could be fixed!
Confirmed on the latest SVN versions as well.
Running kopete or kmail doesn't open kwalletmanager (no icon in the taskbar) and most of the time, passwords are not saved.
I tried with one and two wallets and both are empty if I logout / login my KDE4 session.
Another issue with kwallet : sometimes, applications that store passwords crash (kinda normal for SVN versions) but I still have to enter again passwords when running the applications again (kopete, kmail, ftp passwords used in konqueror / dolphin...)
Confirmed by several people in Ubuntu bug tracker:
I just tried and I can reproduce that on current trunk. It seems to be specific to dolphin as other programs (like kopete) store their passwords correctly.
I can also confirm the bug - dolphin does not store the passwords but programms like kopete do.
KDE 4.0.3, Fedora 9
I confirm this bug on Kubuntu KDE 4.0.4 and KDE 4.1 Beta 1 (KDE 4.0.80).
I can confirm this as well, is http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=160450 a duplicate?
Yes, looks like, but this one is the better report i think :p

The problem is solved for me in the latest OpenSUSE 11.0 packages versioned as 4.0.82 (repository: KDE4, unstable, desktop). KWallet saves its information now correctly.
Name : kde4-kwalletmanager Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 4.0.82 Vendor: openSUSE Build Service
Release : 9.2 Build Date: Wed 11 Jun 2008 11:19:58 PM CEST
The problem seems to be that the kioslaves don't use kwallet directly but use kpasswdserver (which in turn saves the password using kwallet).

Separate kwalletd from kded and make it a stand-alone executable. It's started whenever the Wallet client API needs it. Disabling wallet support in the options makes kwalletd not
