This behaves precisely the same way: :30-1:00 wait time for KDE to put up a "password" prompt which requires I use a mouse.

Have you tried running emacs -nw inside of a terminal yet and interfacing with a password yet?

Subject: Getting rid of the GUI pop-ups

With Emacs 25.1.1, password prompts are no longer in the menu bar but via my (KDE/Plasma) window manager. Not only is this annoying, it is costly -- it takes 30 seconds to a full minute for the popup to appear, meanwhile Emacs is frozen. I would love for this to just be the menu prompt, as it used to be. I've tried

`(setq menu-prompting nil)` but it doesn't seem to have any effect. I see these prompts most often when opening .gpg files and when trying to perform a git push. I'm hoping someone will tell me there is a better way to disable these than just rebuilding emacs from source with X menus disabled (particularly as I have been pleased to get my emacs from the repo without needing to build from source).

Good news would be much appreciated!
