It shouldn't be. I added it for the sake of good practice with backwards 
compatability; I don't know any 3rd party (or KDE for that matter) that 
somehow references the passwords KCM.

I think this is caused by a missconfigured setup. Christian, what KDE version 
are you running, and is another KDE installation somehow interfering?

KControl doesn't check the NoDisplay directive, and that's why Binner remove 
the Categories directives from desktop files(passwords among others) in order 
for KControl to not load them. /If/ Christian's setup is broken, this 
behavior could be the cause of the bug(a passwords desktop file with 
Categories laying around).
Attached patch makes KControl NoDisplay aware(which people have silently 
dropped since July), but it shouldn't be necessary in this case. I run clean 
HEAD and KControl is fine.
