Autologin prevents keyring unlock
Last modified: 2016-12-20 10:02:44 EST

Every time autologin is enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:

All programs depending on password input to respond automatically with their already stored passwords.
This bug might be related to bug 1269581.
Today I installed updates 3.18.1-1 for gnome-keyring and gnome-keyring-pam, as well as libgnome-keyring 3.12.0-5. After turning on autologin and restarting my system, the situation remained the same, that is, the bug preventing the unlock of the keyring is still present. So, I turned off autologin again, restarted the system and everything is back to normal.
Updates 3.18.1-2 for gnome-keyring and gnome-keyring-pam appear to have solved this issue. Good job.
I confirm this happens also in Fedora 24, and without the autologin feature if the user has no password.

Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
