Not unlock default keyring (PAM problem)

This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
lxdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lxdm

lxdm doesn't unclock the default keyring when the use log in.

I suspect the upstream commit :;a=commit;h=b81e7901a91b4813cbc8ab7b744efb930c02ca4f
This commit need also support for passing DESKTOP_SESSION to pam, which is currently openSUSE specific.

I'm not sure it is a bug or I'm missing something. Should I file a new bug for this?

From :

The keyring works fine for the wireless password, and for luks-encrypted volumes, but not for Secure Shell keys.
You run "ssh <email address hidden>" and it prompts you for the key passphrase in the terminal.
Expected behavior: with Gnome, you run "ssh <email address hidden>" and the password manager opens a GUI to ask for the passphrase. Once unlocked, it remains unlocked until you log off. Moreover, at that moment of unlocking you can tell it to remember the passphrase forever so it gets automatically unlocked next time you login.
Ubuntu Lucid, installed lubuntu-desktop package, using gdm session manager, all updated.
