Seems there is still another aspect to this, resulting in it still being
unfixed for the Kubuntu Live session.

casper runs in scripts/casper-bottom/34disable_kde_services

rm -f /root/usr/share/kde4/services/kwalletd.desktop
rm -f /root/usr/share/kservices5/kwalletd5.desktop
rm -f /root/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.kde.kwalletd5.service
rm -f /root/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.kde.kwalletd.service

which was done in 2015 to stop kwallet dunning in the live session

This sadly now has the consequence that plasma-nm sees no actual written
config disabling kwalllet, but maybe simply fails to access it thinking
it should be available, then falls back to the password with network
manager. Hence possibly the double password request.

Since 2016 releases of plasma 5.7.x the change "Store password into
NetworkManager by default when KWallet is not enabled" enables fallback
to network manager, but seemingly only when plasma-nm knows kwallet is
disabled by config, not when it has been just broken by casper.

So one possible solution could be to leave kwallet's files in place, but
write a temp config file 'kwalletrc' for just the live session disabling
kwallet, so plasma-nm knows to not use it, hence using a working route
first time.

  Kubuntu requires that the WiFi password be entered twice before WiFi
  can be used

Bug description:
  Kubuntu 16.04 ISO number 20160417.1 Xenial Final
  Bug reported against network-manager 
  Every time I tried the live Kubuntu 16.04 image on a Lenovo t420 laptop it 
requires to enter the wifi password twice before I can use the wifi. Once from 
the network icon panel, then second time a prompt on the desktop to enter the 
wifi password.

  I do not know if this is typical behavior of Kubuntu since I usually use GTK 
base desktops.
  I guess network-manager is the right package to file this report against.
