Re: [Evolution] evolutio forgets my passwords every start

I know you've said previously that you have two instances of
gnome-keyring-daemon running - is that still the case?  Do you know when
they are started?

Immediately after logging in, but before running Evo, I have:

23795 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --daemonize --login

That is what I get as well - presumably started by PAM.

I run Evo, and get:

23795 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --daemonize --login
24608 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --foreground --components=secrets

It is understandable why there are two processes, but the second one
should have completed and gone away.  Details on the command line
options are at:

To precis what it says, the --login option doesn't fully initialise the
daemon, that is done by a separate process running with the --start
option.  What it looks like is that this second daemon can't find or
talk to the initial --login daemon so takes over the role itself and so
asks for the password to unlock the login keyring.

I suppose one way to find out if that's true is to look at the files and
sockets they are each using - the sockets are in /tmp/keyring-* - there
should only be one directory owned by your username and containing 4
named sockets - you can also use lsof on the running processes to see
what sockets they each have open.

Which user owns each of the gnome-keyring-daemon processes? They should
be owned by your username.

There is also some mention of DBUS being used - is DBUS also started as
part of your login process?
