The above should work, but you need to do it in a parent process of all
other applications so that they inherit the environment variables.
E.g., KDE's equivalent of gnome-session.

Running gnome-keyring-daemon by hand and manually creating the
environment variables should also work.

libgnome-keyring should run the daemon if needed -- would be a nice
