I tried this method also, and the result was most unexpected. It appeared to
open a konsole very briefly then close it. When I opened the console again
it was totally transparent, but moving it moved the contents with it. Copy,
paste and up-arrow on the command line didn't work in it either. Opening a
new shell in another tab brought up a normal console. I then tried the
backup script and it ran without asking for the password, so I presume that
giving the command in the Autostart script had actually done the job, but it
hadn't requested the password. I don't like anything taking total command
like this. Once I've given the password I'm happy for gpg-agent and keychain
to manage them for my convenience, but I don't want it to happen without my
