I propose changing both client and server behaviour.

The call to open the wallet is sent and replied to immediately, indicating 
success in starting the opening. However, kwalletd notifies the caller of 
an open wallet via signal, which the client must listen to.

This will also allow the client to start an event loop to repaint itself, 
avoiding the KDE 3 problem of the GUI freezing in *all* programs waiting 
for the wallet to open.
