Package: kmail
Version: 3.5.5.dfsg.1-2

Kmail's handling of account passwords has a seriously annoying bug.  If
under account settings you tell kmail to store a POP password, then at
some point you answered yes to the dialog box asking to store passwords
in kwallet, then later decide you don't want to do that (it is extremely
annoying and pops up continuously asking for the password - this is a
massive annoyance not a convenience), you will repeatedly get the prompt
to open kwallet.  There's no way to get rid of it.  If you say no to
this dialog, you will get another dialog asking if it wants to store the
password locally.  If you say yes to this (and yes to the warning) you
would think that it would do what you want and store the password and
get on with it.  But no, the very next time you run kmail you must go
through this dialog process again - as though it just ignored what you
told it to do the last time.

Basically at this point I want to never use kdewallet, but it seems as
though once kmail becomes tainted by using it even once, you can never
get rid of it.
