Not quite the same thing, Anne.  The password he's referring to is the
keyring app, not the actual TKIP key.  The TKIP key would be stored in the
keyring app...the password that he and I refer to is for the keyring app,
itself.  He's suggesting that if your login password and your password for
the keyring app are the same, then you may not be prompted for the keyring

Might you have been prompted, Anne, to save the key in the keyring, but
opted not to do so, earlier on when you first set up the wireless
networking on your system?
