I don't use a keyring. How do I turn off this pop-up?

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.

I used gnome-keyring-editor to delete the keyring. On the next login, it got recreated. Since I have gdm autologin to my user account, it demanded that I enter the keyring password. Then, I was back to square one.

Bloody annoying.

If I have gdm autologin to my user account, and there's no password that it can swipe behind my back, to unlock the keyring, it should just shut the FSCK up, and not bother me.
