Review request for KDE Runtime.


Hi, this patch fixes an issue where kio_smb wouldnt save the credentials in kwallet wether one checks the "save password" box or not.

In slavebase.h is the following is stated:
"Starting with KDE 4.7, calling openPasswordDialog will no longer store
passwords automatically for you. This was done to avoid accidental storage
of incorrect or invalid password information."

So i added a call to cacheAuthentication() to store the password permanently.


  kioslave/smb/kio_smb_auth.cpp 1010ffc 



Used dolphin to access a samba share and checked the "save password" dialog. Verified that the password gets stored in KWallet.
