If you're using kdepim 4.4, that could explain it. That uses a sub-eventloop 
which probably confuses dbus calls to kwallet.

My latest patch on the 4.4 branch of kdepim to fix the akonadi self test 
dialog stuff should fix it (if using kdepimlibs 4.6 or greater).

Distros should probably cherry pick that. It will probably be getting into 
kubuntu soon I think.
