Thanks. I didn't find that while STFA. Must be too new for google.

In any case, I used the value account-xxx where xxx is the value found
after ID= in the file you specify. As there was one entry that _does_
stay, I could verify that this is the correct way to do it. After
entering the password, I click Save. However, when I open Kmail, I am
_still_ prompted for a password. And although I didn't close the
Kwallet window, the entry disappears! Completely reproducible, I did
it four times.

Why are the entries disappearing?
