Ensure authentication data is cached properly in Dolphin
Review Request #104614 - Created April 16, 2012 and submitted
The attached patch sets the main window on the main directory lister in DolphinView and KIO jobs in DolphinMainWindow to ensure that login data for remote protocols such as sftp, ftp are cached properly for the duration of the application. Otherwise, the end user is going to end up being unnecessarily re-prompted to enter password login information. Please note that this patch does not address every use of KIO or KDirLister in Dolphin. There are other places in Dolphin's code where directory listers and/or jobs are used without setting the main window.
Thanks for the patch, I've not been aware that this caching-issue can be solved like this :-) I guess this patch has not been applied to the latest master: DolphinView does not have a dir-lister anymore (it has been moved to KFileItemModel). Anyhow: Please just let me rebase the patch myself so that I can catch all cases - I'll push the patch to master during the next days.
