Thanks. This is due to abnorbalities in libgnome-keyring and how its API
maps to that of the Secret Service DBus API [1]. This is one of the
reasons that libgnome-keyring is being deprecated in favor of new
solutions that expose the Secret Service API better.

Work around here on gnome-keyring git master:
