ANNOUNCE: gnome-keyring 2.19.91

gnome-keyring is the part of the GNOME Desktop that saves your network
and other passwords securely.

Package Mantainers:

    * gnome-keyring's PAM module needs to be integrated into the pam
      configuration files for gdm and gnome-screensaver. See:

    * gnome-keyring now has dependencies on libgcrypt and libhal.

    * When run on an OS or security profile that does not allow a
      normal user to lock memory, passwords and/or keys may be
      written to disk.

Changes between 2.19.90 and 2.19.91:

    * Builds with newer versions of DBus [Theppitak Karoonboonyanan]
    * In the PAM module we now support starting gnome-keyring-daemon
      when the user's session actually starts, rather than during
      password validation. This makes us more solid and sane with
      GDM and well behaved PAM using applications. [Chris Rivera]
    * In the PAM module check that the socket is owned by the same
      user, before sending the login password there.
    * Don't read from /dev/random when not needed. This makes
      startup faster in many cases, as it won't block for entropy.
    * Get around more optimizations that cancel out wiping of strings
      in memory before freeing.
    * Now builds on FreeBSD [Joe Marcus Clarke]
