Note that this is just a warning, but it's a bit confusing as lp-login doesn't give any other output.

I wonder what is actually trying to contact gnome-keyring, as bzr itself doesn't talk to it. launchpadlib, which the launchpad and builddeb plugins for bzr use for some things, does use gnome keyring (through python-keyring), but the lp-login command doesn't.

summary: - console launchpad-login broken in Precise
+ console launchpad-login warns about gnome-keyring in Precise
Changed in bzr:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
Changed in bzr (Ubuntu):
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Low

can you please attach the traceback from ~/.bzr.log?

lp-login uses authentication.conf for which bzr-gtk is/was adding a credential store, this is probably the root cause (I thought there was a open bug on bzr-gtk for that or something closely related).
