Right now: it's a separate session, so it starts a new kdeinit4, klauncher, 
kded4, etc. If it requires kwallet, it will start a new one too. No 
infrastructure will be shared.

After this change: it's the same session, so it will reuse the running 
kdeinit4, klauncher, kded4, etc. If you try to use kwallet, the password 
dialog will show in the older session.
