First of all, kpackagekit != kpackage (as you wrote in the subject). Please
be precise, as they are completely different software.

Yes, somehow KPackageKit loves to forget its settings, I don't understand
why, really. See:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475303

We patched it now to make it the internal default not to automatically
install anything (this was already the kde-settings default, but
KPackageKit forgot that too!), but that's really just taping over the
issue.
