Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-11-25 06:50:27 EST
Description of problem:

Noticed when I changed passwd for a user the password stored in gnome-keyring
( it's gnome-keyring right ) did not get "updated" hence when the user logged 
in he for example had to use his old password to allow NM to connect.

So i'm wondering if it would not be smart to add to the properties field for the
user, a check box [] Reset Gnome-keyring or []Update Gnome-keyring with new password

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

As the keyring is protected by the (current) user password, this can't be done from system-config-users -- the administrator usually doesn't know the password. This could probably be done in the gnome-about-me tool (System->Preferences->Personal->About Me) where users change their own passwords (as they have to type in both old and new passwords).

Changing the component to control-center.

well about me just runs userpasswd, but I think this might be able to be done in the pam gnome keyring pam module.

It might even already, but just not work because we don't add it to the right pam stack, not sure.

Reassigning to gnome-keyring
