Apologies, I thought I included the kde list in the initial posts,
which had the summary info. It must not have gone through.
Here is the bug report in question:
I also reported this to the developer list about 2 years ago:
In short,if you:
Download a PDF. Fill in personal information. Print it. Close it.
Never once even hitting save...
Okular dumps every bit of data that you typed into a clear text file
in a hidden directory. At a minimum, its really bad behavior. At
worst, on say, a library terminal, it is opening up every unsuspecting
user to having their information stolen.

Its a pretty basic user-interface paradigm that you shouldn't store
data like that without the users permission.
Especially in an application that handles PDF files, which are used
for private and personal stuff all the time.
