A known issue as a result of the new launchpadlib password store approach.

Instead of crashing, requestsync should tell the user what went wrong and how it could be fixed.

As a workaround, we could catch this in u-d-t (we have few places where we login to launchpad with credentials). We could also provide a config option forcing the use of an unencrypted credential store. Don't know if this is worth the effort, though.
