ssh keys no longer getting added to ssh agent upon login

gnome-session (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Not sure if this is in gnome-session/lightdm/ssh-agent/pam/something else, but my ssh keys in .ssh are no longer unlocked/added to the ssh-agent launched by gnome-session upon login in precise, launching a gnome-shell session from lightdm.

running ssh-add and entering in my login password works, but this used to be done automatically upon login in every previous release.

I'm having the same problem after I installed gnome-shell from the "GNOME3 team" PPA at .

When looking at /var/log/auth.log, I get this:
May 9 18:49:35 ema gnome-keyring-daemon[5640]: couldn't spawn prompt tool: Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/gnome-keyring/gnome-keyring-prompt-3" (No such file or directory)

And indeed, /usr/lib/gnome-keyring/gnome-keyring-prompt-3 was included in precise's default gnome-keyring package (3.2.2-2ubuntu4), but it's not present in 3.4.1-0ubuntu1~precise2, the version the PPA.

Rebooting, logging into Unity, then rebooting again and logging into gnome-shell solved it for me.

I am seeing the same thing under unity on precise. Not sure if that would be logged under this bug, or a new one as it is not really a gnome issue
