Nope, thats a furphy - made the alterations, two boots so far and no pin
dialog ...

Took the SD card out and the pin popped up - twice

Put the SD card back in and no PIN dialog.

I have an 8G card as 2 partitions.  On p1 I have a single file while on
p2 I have tangogps maps - but p2 isnt indexed as far as I can see, so
they should not affect it and qpe doesnt show as being busy in task
list.  The alterations suggested below had been done.

Could it be an issue related to SD cards rather than QPE?
