I did some more testing with 11.3M4 live usb media.

observed the following:

1. first boot without networkmanagement and kwallet configuration
2. click on Connect to other network in the tray
3. select wlan and enter key
4. select next, finish in kwallet to disable it
5. knm asks again for passphrase

now I looked around:
- security setting of knm is set to file/unencrypted
- the file in .kde4/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections does not have a
wpa key stored. knm resists in saving it in the disabled and not responding
kwallet

going on with testing:

6. select manage-connections and delete the connection added in step 3/4
7. manually create a new connection, enter passphrase...

- the file in .kde4/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections has the wpa key
now set - looks fine

8. select this connection added in step 6. from the tray menu

- stdout of knm now reveals that it still tries to talk to kwallet even if it's
disabled in the settings and the wpa key is stored in the connections file

9, kquitapp knetworkmanager
10. knetworkmanager
11. do the same as in step 8 (activate the stored connection)
12. knm finally connects

I'll attach the stdout of knm before restarting


I'm also raising severity as this probably hits every live-cd user and everyone
who sets up the network connection without having manually disabled the kwallet
first.
