For the record, my KMail is using the KWallet as well, and as you say  
on sending the first email it "forgets" the password and requires you  
to enter it again. In the past, I have tried to cancel the send, but  
it did not "recover" the password from KWallet. I guess I will file a  
bug report on this when I get home.
