In addition to Thiago's reply to your question, can I remind you of a line you wrote? ;)

From kdelibs/TODO:
- Prevent re-entering event loop in kded to avoid reentrancy problems like with kwallet in KDE3 (Lubos).

The idea of splitting out kwalletd (which shows a modal dialog) out of kded, should make you happy,
it solves at least one of the points where kded used to have a sub event loop.
