Re: Evolution still asks for all my mail passwords in KDE. It works fine, however, in gnome.

The first time I start Evolution in a new login session (under KDE) I
have to remember to kill the gnome-key daemon or Evo will ask for
every password. After that first time, a new gnome-key is spawned and
subsequent runs of Evo don't have the problem (until I log out and in
again). Evo asks for my keyring password the first time only.

This is a PITA. There's no reason I can see that Gnome and KDE have to
use two different keyring (or wallet) systems which appear not to talk
to each other.
