Version:           4.5 (using KDE 4.5.5) 
OS:                Linux

I found out strange behavoiour, which I can reproduce (see steps) every time on
my KDE desktop 4.5.5 release 1.
After that, when I let OS to suspend to RAM and then resume, desktop appears
and NO password is REQUIRED ===> SECURITY ISSUE

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Press Alt+Esc to open "System Activity".
2) Press Ctrl+Alt+Esc and kill "System Activity" window (from now on, pressing
Alt+Esc wont open "System Activity" again = nothing happens on Alt+Esc)
3) suspend to RAM
----
4) resume from sleep
5) KDE desktop appears - no password required, session was NOT locked before
suspend!!!! HUGE security issue!!!

Actual Results:  
after resume from sleep (suspend to RAM) -> KDE desktop appears - no password
required, session was NOT locked before suspend!!!! HUGE security issue!!!

Expected Results:  
after suspend and then resume - dekstop MUST BE LOCKED AND PASSWORD REQUIRED TO
UNLOCK SESSION
