Description of problem: Nautilus key-ring password prompt is being displayed
even though I am keying in the password that I had keyed in. When I select
Deny a couple of times another dialog is displayed and I can login.
Why does it keep prompting for a 'keyring' password?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Within the GUI, I select the option Places > Connect to server, and update IP

again it seems as if I'm keying in the wrong password because it keeps
I select Deny, another dialog is displayed and after keying in the logon
credentials for the windows pc (windows share), I can browse successfully.
Steps to Reproduce:
and you're sure nautilus-share is related to this bug?
No, but I'm not sure where to find that out.
I've also noted that even though I select 'Remember password forever' nautilus

RedHat is running on a VMWare Workstation.

still want to keep this bug here?
you better change component to nautilus (because you've used only nautilus), or

next time check if you have package, you want to bless, installed with "rpm -q
package" (; .
