gnome-keyring-daemon failing of sshfs

Bug #1321922 reported by Charlie Ott on 2014-05-21

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNOME Keyring
gnome-keyring (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Use whatever local installation you want, e.g. an ubuntu live cd

killall gnome-keyring-daemon
cd ~/.gnome2
mv keyrings keyrings.old
mkdir keyrings
chmod 700 keyrings

sshfs localhost:/home/username/.gnome2/ keyrings
gnome-keyring-daemon -s -f

With those commands, you're running gnome-keyring-daemon using sshfs for keyrings

This causes the gnome-keyring-daemon to hang, while simultaneously creating thousands of *temp* files in ~/.local/share/keyrings
