    Default KRDC keyboard focus problem

    Using KRDC to connect to a remote host, I frequently run into a problem with
    keyboard focus (or the program just ignores the keyboard - same effect).
    What happens is that I fire up KRDC and select (or enter) a site to connect
    to. Generally, I get a popup wanting a password to open the wallet or the
    password for the selected site. The failure is that the popup will not
    accept keyboard input - the keyboard is ignored completely. The problem
    exists only within KRDC environment only. Once I do get the password/login
    popup to accept keyboard input, that session of KRDC has no further problems
    with the keyboard for days on end.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone? I can't see any repeatable pattern
    leading to this situation but it can be a real PITA getting keyboard access
    restored to KRDC when it does happen.

    (11.3, X86-64 system)

    on a first looks this does not look like a bug in KRDC to me:
    the kwallets password dialog is fired and controlled by the wallet manager,
    KRDC just asks the manager via D-Bus for an entries content.

    Typically I see problems like this with unnoticed additional popups
    (somewhere in the background), popups like warnings or errors that act in a
    modal way, want to be accepted first and thus grabbing the keyboard focus.

    That was my first thought as well but I couldn't find any pending popups. I
    did finally hit on a usable way to break the deadlock - whatever it is - by
    simply switching to a command line session (alt-ctl-F1) and back.

    Strange problem: nothing obviously consistent about when or if it occurs
    that I can see other than being on the first call with kwallet not open yet.
