Bug#585043: Cannot type password when run from .kde/env during KDE startup
When ksshaskpass is spawned by program running during early KDE startup
it is impossible to type the password.
I've following scriptlet in .kde/env:
$ cat 01ssh-add.sh
During startup I can see ksshaskpass window, it even got focus (slightly blue
frame round the text input field), but no keystrokes are registered.
No black dots are visible during typing the password. No key is added
to ssh-agent. The ksshaskpass window, however, can react to <Enter> key.
It looks like only text input field is handicapped.
I noticed the problem some time ago. It was either when I upgraded KDE
from 4:4.3.4-1 to 4:4.4.3-1 or from 4:4.4.3-1 to 4:4.4.3-2.
At the moment I am running current sid and the problem still exists.
