Okay, that makes sense. I also had the OP's problem, and kwalletmanager was
acting strangely-- it wouldn't create new wallets. And I had upgraded
dbus. By the time I was done trying different things (reinstall kwallet,
downgrade kwallet, wipe config files...) I'd trashed my old wallet and had
to start a new one, but anyway it works again now.
