Review request for KDE Runtime.


KPasswdServer currently processes requests to prompt the user for passwords serially, i.e. one request at a time even if those requests came two totally different applications. Unfortunately that results one application waiting on a completely unrelated application to receive authorization information, which IMHO is unacceptable.

The commit that caused this problem was a4cc5583 and its intent was to address the issue 2 or more password dialogs being shown at the same time. The attached patch modifies that commit so that processRequest will handle requests so long as

#1. The request comes from two separate window ids.
#2. There is no pending prompt for the requested key (read: host+port).

So long as the above two conditions are met, the password prompt will be shown as required. This fixes a bug report, which I cannot find at the moment, where attempting to log into an sftp server in one Konqueror instance prevented the user from logging into a router admin interface in a completely different Konqueror instance.
