Thank you John, that has fixed the UbuntuOne autostart problem. However,
after the reboot, I had two network apps running. I fixed this by
changing the Network GUI command option in Default Applications for
LXSession from "nm-applet" to "no", and then do a reboot.

The Keyring password problem was solved by installing Seahorse. The auto
unlocking sorted itself out at the reboot.
