Standard keyring and Evolution

Lately, instead of a prompt to typing the password for one of my accounts in Evolution, I am prompted to type in the password for the standard keyring instead. What happened and why? How can I change it back?

I have tried unchecking the "remember password", but it still doesn't ask me for the password for my account, but still prompts me for the password for the standard keyring.

I'm running Evolution under Debian 5.0 "Lenny".

Thanks for the help

This worked for me. Open your home folder. Click on View and check "show hidden files". Go to .gnome2/keyrings and delete the file login.keyring. The next time you're prompted for the keyring it should ask you to set a new password.
