Thanks for the feedback Lars..
After *a lot* of trying different things.. I think I've discovered the
answer...(might be of use to others if someone hits this in the future
On the KDE desktop sharing configuration settings, you have to disable
both of the following options;
- Announce service on the network
- Confirm uninvited connections before accepting
I did have the "confirm uninvited..." option disabled from the start,
but it seems unless you have both of those settings disabled, then you
get the prompt at the desktop each time!
