I'm not on 3.5 (currently 3.4.3) but this has been the standard behaviour of 
kwallet since it's inception: the wallet only stays open for a finite period.  
It will also close after certain events (such as the screen saver activating) 
if it's configured to do so.

Like everything in KDE, all of these options can be disabled too.  You CAN 
configure the wallet to stay open permanently.  Have a look in the settings 
menu for Kwallet.

Unless they've done something seriously phunky in KDE 3.5.x I can't see the 
behaviour changing dramatically.

Cheers,

James
