Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-keyring

gnome-keyring-daemon is running before suspend, but is no longer running upon resume. Doesn't survive suspend to disk or ram.

Thanks for your bug report. Does it create any use bug? What do you do and what error do you get exactly?

Well, the keyring stores all kinds of useful information, like WPA/WEP keys, ssh key passphrases, etc.. The way I first noticed that the daemon wasn't running is that Network Manager couldn't just resume my wireless connection, but would always ask for the WAP's WPA passphrase (since it couldn't get it from the keyring). Same thing goes for using ssh (can't rely on the keyring to provide ssh-agent with the passphrase for the ssh key in question).

Not confirming the bug. The keyring is locked on hibernate which is expected and works normally when entering the password on a new gutsy installation. Could you try to attach gdb to the keyring before using suspend and get a backtrace (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash)?

Umm. Nevermind.

Turns out PIBKAC...

A while back, I changed /etc/defaults/acpi-support to restart dbus on resume, 'cause that was the only way I could get network-manager to resume itself. That was killing gnome-keyring-daemon as well as gnome-power-manager :o(

Sorry for the false alarm. My bad.

I get the same behaviour if I set HIBERNATE_MODE=platform in /etc/defaults/acpi-support. Can someone confirm this?
