"Files" Filemanager doesn't remember sftp credentials

Bug Description

When I connect to an Sftp Server, Files offers to remember the supplied information "forever".
After choosing this option, closing the connection and reconnecting, it's still asking for credentials everytime.

This has happened since 12.04 (Now 14.04)

Since my previous link was mentioning rhythmbox specifically and although I don't think it's too ambiguous, here's another report dealing with the Nautilus "Files" file manager:
