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.
