I believe this is the answer.
I was asked for a password and supplied one.
That must have been the "master password" because I could only find
kdewallet when I looked. This wallet could not be opened. However,
prompted by with the above answer, I selected the "change password option".
That notified that I had requested to open kdewallet.
Which leaves the initial problem unanswered. What triggered the "KWallet"
routine when the task was to remove an entry from the print-queue. I
suspect that I should have been "root" to make such a request. But
encouraging me to use KWallet seems to be the wrong response.
As you may deduce, I am a recent arrival at KDE.
My thanks to you and to "Pollywog" for the advice.
