It's highly unlikely, Mike.  I'm a kde user, and I use kwallet heavily.  In 
the first place, I'm pretty sure that I was never asked about saving this key 
in my wallet, but even if I was, I would have saved it, and the wallet is 
always open throughout any session - I set it to stay open until I log out - 
so it would provide the key if it knew it.

The only place I have set the key is in the dialog that you get for network 
settings, to the best of my knowledge, part of NM.  That still retains the key 
- but it doesn't get used.
