You probably have a miss-understanding about the policy kit, Its not
supposed to auto authenticate user neither remember those information. Its
certainly not supposed to work with Keyring manager.
According to PolicyKit introduction in
> PolicyKit is an application-level toolkit for defining and handling the
> policy that allows unprivileged processes to speak to privileged processes:
> It is a framework for centralizing the decision making process with respect
> to granting access to privileged operations for unprivileged applications.
> PolicyKit is specifically targeting applications in rich desktop
> environments on multi-user UNIX-like operating systems. It does not imply or
> rely on any exotic kernel features.

Why do you think current version of Gnome is not stable already? Its
certainly much stable then previous versions as it contains all the recent
bug fixes and patches. I'm yet to see it crush. Same goes to X server. After
the final release the GDE have been solid for me. Not a single crush.
The more recent version have more less bugs, more less bugs means more
stable applications. So I welcome every updates.
Again you can always turn off auto updates if you don't like.
KDE's version system is different then Gnome. KDE was released to the
publics so that interested normal users can start trying it, but they've
been worn, Its not KDE developer's fault if someone tries to use unstable
and incomplete version.
Whats stopping you to manually configuring X? I had to configure my X
configuration manually when an update broke my X (during alpha period), I
just switched to other terminal(<Ctrl>+<Alt>+(1-6) and edited my xorg.conf
file and restarted. I know I still can do that if I have any problems.
Amarok worked out of the box with pulseaudio for me ... thats updates does
for you ;)
