Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2007-10-09 09:39:26 EDT
Can you upgrade to 2.20-4.f8 and test. We fixed a bunch of problems.
Also, if your ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default file is 0 bytes, do:
echo -n default > ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default
Comment 2 Edouard Bourguignon 2007-10-09 10:32:22 EDT
where can i find gnome-keyring-manager-2.20-4.f8? can't find it in koji
All my other gnome-keyring-* are already in 2.20-4

you mean  ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default or ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring?
I only have default.keyring and it's not empty
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-10 09:20:32 EDT
Alex meant gnome-keyring-2.20-4.f8

And ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default (without extension)

default.keyring is the actual keyring, default is a text file containing the
name of the default keyring.
Comment 4 Edouard Bourguignon 2007-10-10 12:51:37 EDT
gnome-keyring-2.20-4 was already installed and now after upgrade:

[madko@Alcyone ~]$ rpm -qa|grep keyring
[madko@Alcyone ~]$ ls .gnome2/keyrings/
default  default.keyring
[madko@Alcyone ~]$ cat .gnome2/keyrings/default
default[madko@Alcyone ~]$ 

The only change I can notice is the fact that the uncompletely drawn window
frozing my desktop and asking for keyring pass appears a second time when I kill it.

Which version of glibc are you using ? 
The was a bug fix in glibc recently that solved some hang issues with the the
gnome-keyring dialog. 

Can you try again with the latest glibc, please ?
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2007-10-11 09:28:31 EDT
This is a dup of bug 321761, which is a glibc gettext locking bug.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 321761 ***
Comment 7 Edouard Bourguignon 2007-10-11 10:15:06 EDT
i'm using the glibc-2.6.90-17, i will try with glibc-2.6.90-18 asap
Comment 8 Edouard Bourguignon 2007-10-12 02:39:29 EDT
