kwallet does not remember allowed applications

Description of problem:
Every here and there, I get kwallet prompt to allow access from some applications. All the time, I'm clicking "allow always", yet I get the same question for the same application again after some time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use some service that accesses kwallet
2. when prompted to allow the access from the application, choose "always allow"
3. continue using the application, do some logout/logon cycles, have some patience for a few days
after some tries, the application's access to kwallet is suspended, you get the same prompt again, having to explicitly allow the access
if you choose to allow/deny _always_, you answer this question just once per application, not being bothered again
hm, I remember that there should exist also some bug/RFE to add an interface to manage allowed applications, but I don't see anything like that in systemsettings, has it been implemented or forgotten forever?
I haven't experienced the behavior you're describing here. However, it could be caused by the fact I'm using kwallet only in a minority of applications (dolphin for example) and it is asking just for the password to the wallet to open it. Could you please name a few examples of apps where this problem happens?
The allowed applications can be accesed via kwalletmanager.

I can see the list there but I cannot edit it
well, I haven't seen this bug lately, probably it got fixed in 4.9.x
I don't know how to confirm this as the behaviour was a bit random ... I guess I'd just leave this rot until F17 becomes EOL ;-)

curse, I've just hit it again, see the new screenshot
I've just suspended the machine by closing the lid, then after waking it up and unlocking the screen, this is what I got ...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
