I think you want a combination of revelation and gnome-keyring.
Revelation will store the passwords in an aes encrypted database. Its
pretty cool, but you have to pull the passwords out of it manually.
Gnome-keyring does this automagically, but not all apps support it. As
more apps support gnome-keyring it looks like it will be pretty cool.
