Description Stephen P. Schaefer 2004-06-09 17:31:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
I was trying to look at a windows share (SMB filesystem).  I saved a
bad password into the keyring.  From this point on, I don't get
prompted for a password, and I don't have access to that windows share
(window shares for which I entered the correct password work fine). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Nautilus
3.Enter smb://smbservername/
4.When prompted, give a bad password
5.Save the bad password in the keyring


Actual Results:  Message box: The folder contents could not be
displayed.  Sorry, couldn't display all the contents of "Windows
Network: smbservername"

Expected Results:  Prompt to correct the password.  Alternatively,
make available a password editting tool.

Additional info:

I can probably fix this by removing
~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring, but that's a nuisance w.r.t all
the correct passwords.

Yes, we're planning a management ui. However, it seems like a bug that
it doesn't give a password dialog if the saved password is wrong.

gnome-keyring-manager is in rawhide.
