Description Daniel Malmgren 2008-07-15 07:56:54 EDT
Description of problem:
The first time I start evolution in a session (when evolution-alarm-notify isn't
already started) I get a requester asking me for the password to my default keyring.

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

Additional info:
The requester says:
Enter password for default keyring to unlock
The application "evolution-alarm-notify"
(/usr/libexec/evolution/2.22/evolution-alarm-notify) wants
access to the default keyring but it is locked.

However, disabling the connection to my Google calendar fixes this. I want to
see my Google calendar though...

In the keyring handler there is an item for the password to my Google calender,
and under programs for that item evolution-alarm-notify is in the list (with
correct path). I don't know what more to check...

That's normal behavior.  Your keyring is guarded by a master password and must
be unlocked the first time an application wants access to it.  Your keyring
password is what unlocks the keyring for the application.
