Bug Description

After upgrading Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 (both Russian versions) on Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11SR nm-applet started asking for the password to unlock the keyring to read passphrase for WLAN with hinned SSID. Passphrase is stored in the keyring, and if access is granted, nm-applect connects fine.

If automatic login is disabled, then nm-applet gains access to the keyring automatically.

Yes, i can confirm it too.
This is very annoying, it has always happened to me and I didn't know why.
Automatic login is the problem.

This happens for me as well, in 9.04 Jaunty. Either I have to input the password in the login dialogue, or in the keyring (when auto-login is enabled).
