Changing an expired password in lightdm does not change gnome-keyring password

Bug Description

pam_sss is configured to authenticate against Active Directory via Kerberos. pam.d/common-password has been configured such that manual "passwd" invocations change pam_sss, then go on to pam_gnomekeyring and a pam_script to change any lingering passwords manually.
When lightdm detects an expired password and goes through the password change process, pam_gnomekeyring is not able to start gnome-keyring-daemon to change the keyring password.
pam_sss does not have a defer_pwchange option, which appears to be the workaround for bug #972537.
