Description of problem:
It is not possible to save passwords in the gnome-keyring.
Steps to Reproduce:
0. install gnome-keyring-sharp from updates-testing (otherwise it doesn't work at all - http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/gnome-keyring-sharp-1.0.1-0.6.133722svn.fc13 )
1. start gnome-rdp in a terminal
2. try a modify an existing session or create a new one and try to save a password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- error on the command line:
"Duplicate entries found. Deleting item 7 from keyring login"
- password not saved
I have investigated the issue:
- gnome-rdp retrieves the name of the default keyring (which is returned as NULL)
- gnome-rdp saves the passwords to the default keyring
- gnome-rdp looks up the password and compares the associated keyring (which is for whatever reason "login" (which seems to be some kind of default keyring today)); if the associated keyring of this entry does not match the default keyring, gnome-rdp deletes this entry
I have verified that even a plain usage of libgnome-keyring retrieves the default keyring as "NULL", so the problem is either in gnome-keyring (which does not report a meaningful default keyring) or in the logic how gnome-rdp handles the default keyring.
I'll ask upstream (gnome-keyring) whether this behaviour of gnome-keyring is correct or not.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
