You probably have a keyring that you didn't request courtesy of the
gnome gremlins.  Check:

        ~/.gnome2/keyrings

At one point, many fedora releases ago, there was some weirdness where
default.keyring and login.keyring interacted badly and that would cause
such a popup.  These keyrings seem as well documented as the rest of
gnome (meaning hardly at all) so it beats me what they do.  Deleting the
keyrings solved the problem for me back then.  Perhaps it will do the
trick for you too.
