Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdeplasma-addons

The KDE Microblog Widget does not remember the account's password.
Upon login, there's only the configure button.

Steps to reproduce:
- Configure the KDE Microblog widget. (It's on the desktop on default installs)
- Reboot
- Log in. The password will be lost.

I've got the same issue after upgrading from marverick. I also got a strange issue. The hdd spins up and system UI stucks for a while... :/

Confirmed, worked fine in maverick but - after distro upgrade - the password is lost.

From a very quick check, looks like the Microblog widget doesn't use kwallet to save the password any more.

Come on guys, it's a month and a half and nobody picked it up?
Who's the project owner? Is this abandonware?

Let's see if putting Kubuntu Bugs in the notify list changes something.
As far as I know, a patch has already been committed, see https://svn.reviewboard.kde.org/r/5679/.
