Make sure, for starters, to make it simple for yourself, you use the default 
wallet name. I think this kdewallet.kwl. Somebody please correct me if I'm 
wrong about this.

You can change the wallet name used by KDE, but I can't remember offhand which 
setting to use to do this.

Also remember to back up your wallet file whenever you change it. I keep all 
my passwords for everything in my wallet, so I have backup copies in various 
places. The wallet file is in directory ~/.kde/share/apps/kwallet/

BTW I'm still using Gutsy with KDE3.5. One day I will upgrade, but I've not 
yet tried out Intrepid or Jaunty so the above path may have changed.
