There are some issues with using pam-keyring for NetworkManager and a
Screensaver right now.  NetworkManager comes up and tries to connect
immediately on resume, and before a password has been input to unlock
the screensaver and presumably the keyring.  This means that nm-applet
has already asked gnome-keyring-daemon for a password and because of
this gkd has prompted to input a password.

We are working on a better integration of pam-keyring and fedora that
should hopefully tie this all into a nice little package.  We aren't
there yet, but it is on the radar.
