I have used a small shell script in the Autostart directory for the past
several releases of Fedora, and it has worked fine. If the use of
'Autostart' has changed (which is perfectly possible), then it is
something recent.

    A KDE 4 version of ksshaskpass is in the works.

and the current version depends on "KDE 3.x". Hence I assumed the
currently available version is for KDE3 only.
