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):

How reproducible:
Within the GUI, I select the option Places > Connect to server, and update IP 
address and share name to connect to a windows share.

Nautilus first prompted me for a keyring password however, when it prompts me 
again it seems as if I'm keying in the wrong password because it keeps 
prompting again.

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:
Actual results:

and you're sure nautilus-share is related to this bug?
Comment 2 Jon Camilleri 2008-03-17 16:46:33 EDT
No, but I'm not sure where to find that out.

Comment 3 Jon Camilleri 2008-03-17 16:47:58 EDT
I've also noted that even though I select 'Remember password forever' nautilus 
keeps prompting me for the password, somehow.

RedHat is running on a VMWare Workstation.

I'll be rude: you didn't guessed the component correctly.
nautilus-share is extension to nautilus, which enables you one-click sharing
through samba.

still want to keep this bug here?

you better change component to nautilus (because you've used only nautilus), or
directly into gnome-keyring (because it is responsible for keeping passwords).

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