I've found a repeatable way to get it recognized after issuing the
command only one.  I have to uncheck the wireless enable box after
issuing 'sudo iwlist wlan0 scan essid <hidden_ssid>' and then recheck
it.  Apparently, just issuing the command does not cause the applet to
rescan afterward, but unchecking / rechecking enable does.  Then it will
popup the kde wallet, as well as list it in the wifi list.

I have another bug that the popup does not resize automatically, so
multiple wireless listings do not appear.  The fix is to click on the
collapse / expand button just left of the word "wireless" in the applet.
This resizes it so I can see all my wifis.
