Bug Description

For those of us that don't want to use gnome-keyring-ssh and use ssh-agent instead, the changes to fix bug #1271591 prevent us from doing so.

Previously, we were able to disable gnome-keyring-ssh by ediing /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop and setting NoDisplay=false. Then it would be visible in Startup Applications Preferences and you could turn it off. (For mre details and screenshots, see

However, now even though gnome-keyring-ssh is disabled at startup, these new changes cause it to run anyway. What is the new way to disable gnome-keyring-ssh?
