i'm afraid i don't understand the problem. if you do what i
suggested, kwallet won't pop up anymore at all, since there's no
password to ask from you.

to do that open the kwallet manager (or whatever it's called),
usually it sits in your taskbar somewhere. right-clicking on the (or
any, if you have more than one) allows you to change the password.
once you set both to "" (blank), there's no botheration anymore.

as was mentioned in a previous thread some time, the passwords are
still encrypted on disk, but kwallet won't require a password once
your user is logged into KDE.
