Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-keyring

Even though this bug was marked as "fixed" in Edgy last July:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring/+bug/38483

...I do not see any way to change the master password on the keyring. I did find this discussion, where the most recent responses say I have to DELETE THE ENTIRE KEYRING AND CREATE A NEW ONE in order to change the password:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=157808

That is not what I would call "fixed". "Fixed" would mean letting me change the master password without losing all of my keys.

I cannot believe somebody implemented a "security" feature without providing a way to change the password. Mind-boggling.

Or did I miss something?
