Bug#497046: kwalletmanager: Insecure auto closing of wallet
The kwalletmanager automatically closes the wallet after it hasn't been
used for a while. This greatly improves the security of the wallet.
However, when the wallet is closed while some password was still
readable in the wallet, kwalletmanager places a popup over the open
wallet. It's easy to drag this popup away and read all information in
the currently open wallet.
If this doesn't make sense, please drop me an e-mail and I'll send you a
screenshot clearly illustrating the issue.
