NetworkManager vpn connection stores my vpn password in keyring without my consent

Description of problem:
I am using NetworkManager to make a vpn connection. I asked NetworkManager to store the VPN group password in my keyring, but not my VPN personal password. My personal password is my Kerberos password and I don't want it stored anywhere.
What is happening is that the personal password is also being added to the keyring.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use NetworkManager vpn connection
2. Specify the group and personal password and ask for only the group password to be stored in keyring
3. Relogin at most 2 more times and access the VPN connection in question
The VPN connection will not query for the VPN password and a listing of the keyring will show it has been stored in the default keyring.
The VPN connection should only store the group password in the keyring.
I've been meaning to file this as well.
This should be long fixed in the vpnc packages with 0.7.1; choose "always ask" in the connection editor for that connection and you'll always get asked.
