Bug Description

After a software upgrade yesterday involving libpam-kwallet4 and libpam-kwallet5, a window with a title "KDE Wallet Service" appears when I choose a VPN channel in knetworkmanager, launch opera, etc. Until yesterday, this did not happen. In addition, when I enter the correct password, the window reappears with a message "Error opening the wallet kdewallet. Please try again. (Error code -9: Read error - possibly incorrect password.) The wallet used to ask for its password only in some situations, probably because it kept passwords in two wallets: one accessible through kwalletmanager, and one invisible, but still working, and containing most passwords.

I understand that KDE wallet is no longer secure, but it still collects my passwords, and there seems to be no other application that can save them automatically.

Strangely enough, some passwords are managed by some wallet. As kwalletmanager5 demands a password, and it stopped recognizing the correct one, I suspect that the wallet that works is kwallet4. It seems open by default, but I cannot find any wallet manager for it.
