Actually there is a registry daemon(registryd) running behind. registryd
made a CORBA call to the application which runs gnome-keyring(because it
noticed that the application's window becomes deactive), but never
returns. So registryd cannot handle calls from the A11Y components in
other applications. And the desktop hangs.
