Description Florian Steinel 2010-12-25 17:52:20 UTC
Test in 50-ssh-agent for gnome-keyring ssh-agent via gconf, this works only for <=gnome-base/gnome-2.30.* 
(see http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome-keyring-list/2010-November/msg00001.html )

(Maybe look at ubuntus 90×11-common_ssh-agent file?)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Florian Steinel 2010-12-25 18:23:08 UTC
http://packages.ubuntu.com/de/natty/all/x11-common/filelist
90×11-common_ssh-agent

starting ssh-agent in ubuntu is controlled via the Xsession.options.
Maybe a einfo in gnome-base/gnome-keyring:
Disable /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/50-ssh-agent if you want gnome-keyring to take over ssh-agent function.

This is not how it is going to be done, but it is something I had on the back-burner as well.

Gilles, any news about this? (with much newer 3.8.x...) Thanks :)

In summary, that files don't belong to gnome-keyring neither gdm, they belong to ssh... I think there is another bug about this but I don't remember its summary or similar and I haven't found it :S
