Description Jiri Koten 2012-12-20 15:46:34 UTC
Description of problem:
I have different password for login keyring from user password. Therefor upon login gnome-keyring asks for this password to unlock the keyring. 

Sometimes gnome-keyring-ask gets stuck, no gtk dialog with password prompt opens and as a result nm-applet won't appear in panel and also pidgin gets stuck.

I have saved session, so several apps like pidgin and gnome terminal are auto started upon login.  

Sending SIGUSR1 to the stuck gnome-keyring-ask process wakes it up and password prompt is displayed which also wakes up pidgin. nm-applet is still not displayed in the panel.

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

How reproducible:
random, no exact reproducer, but hit it several times.
