Bug Description

I created a bookmark in nautilus to access a server via sftp. When I'm asked to "Enter password for $IP_ADDRESS$", I enter my credentials and choose "Remember forever". I can see the stored credentials in the application seahorse. However, after logging my user out, logging back in, and accessing the sftp server, I'm asked to enter my credentials again.

Btw, I didn't have this problem in Ubuntu 12.04. However, the UI was also a bit different there, so I guess things have changed in nautilus, possibly introducing this bug.
