Right, this is clearly a gnome-keyring bug.  There are a good number
of them it seems.

Not honoring -c or -t is: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/525574
Inability to disable it is: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/558181

The latter is fixed upstream, but only in the gnome-2.25 branch.  I
don't know if anyone intends to backport the fix to the current stable
branch so F-10 can be updated.  The changes don't apply cleanly, so
it'd take a little bit of work to sort out.
