Thank yu Leva,

but, I only found two kcheckpass files (using "locate:/kcheckpass" in 
konquerror) and none were in the $KDEDIR (to say it, I have no 
/home/myfolder/.kde/bin  folder !). One was situated in /usr/bin and the 
other in /etc/pam.d. The two files belong to root.  Something wrong with my 
config ?
