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

gnome-keyring tries to unlock the keyring using your login password first.
This doesn't work for you for some reason. So you have to kill it, then
it'll prompt for it again.

One solution for this is to rpm -e gnome-keyring-pam.

Well, KDE developers want to solve this somehow, but this is a nontrivial
problem. Also because gnome-keyring's "D-Bus interface" is a single
function call which returns a socket ID, then you send all binary data in a
proprietary format over that socket.
