the gnome keyring dialogs block the screen locking

Bug #338057 reported by Julian Alarcon on 2009-03-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

The screen must lock its self if you enable this option, according to an amount of time.

When I start my session, the gnome-keyring ask me to enter a password to unlock an app. In my case is Gwibber, but, can be nm-applet, empathy or any one.

Then, the window to write the password pop up, but I have set my screen to lock its self when 7 minutes pass without any action... But, if the window of gnome-keyring is open, this don't work, my screen do no get locked

I think that it is a security bug, if I open my session and while I wait for my desktop get started, I go away for a while... Anybody can see my desktop.

The screen must to be locked in any moment if I'm not in front of my session for more than 7 minutes.

My system is:
Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, completely updated.
