I store such things in kwallet, yes, for my home system.  I figure if 
someone breaks in and steals it, I'll call the bank, but other than that, 
the loss of a computer I can't afford to replace ATM would be worse than 
anything else that'd happen.

No the netbook, I deliberately do not keep any data that I'd be 
uncomfortable having it go public (well, except my the Linux user account 
passwords themselves).  That way, if it's lost, /all/ I have to worry 
about is the physical property loss.  If I did choose to keep such stuff 
on the netbook, I'd probably keep it in an encrypted fs of some sort, but 
at this point it's simpler not to put anything like that on it.
