What are seahorse and gnome-keyring-manager? What do they?
I use Debian. After a recent install of Squeeze I was confronted with a pop-up window demanding that I open my keyring by typing my keyring password (or something) . I had never seen this before and I had no idea what a keyring is or why I should want one, or how I seem to have acquired one (with a password I have no recollection of ever having selected). In a second attempt at install I did something differently and the demand pop-up has gone away, but I worry that it may come back, and I wonder if I might be missing out on a really nice feature. So where can I learn more. Not more nitty gritty pointy clicky, but some discussion of why I might want to know about this, and why it might be worthwhile to have this functioning correctly on my box. (I have already found a thread here telling how to disable it. But I worry that Gnome Developers will discover that their baby is being killed by too many users and change where the disable stuf is hidden. And maybe it really is a beutiful baby.)
