xrdp, auto-login and keyring unlock

centos 6.4 server 64bit with gnome desktop.
I have xrdp working on centos6 and remote machines can connect and see the gnome desktop. If I boot up the centos 6 machine manually and log in as a user all is fine but if I use auto-logon then when I connect remotely I get a "keyring unlock" box comes up, which is not much good because there's no-one on the centos6 machine to enter the password, I have to have sole access. I've got it working temporarily by using a null password in vino.local but I know this is not safe. is there a more secure way to get round the keyring-unlock box?

this question also posted on centos 6 forum
