Encryption and Keyrings

This behavior changed in future versions. I know the problem you are
trying t describe. In ubuntu 8 the keyring is password protected. When
you save passwords they get stored in the keyring. The second password
you enter unlocks the keyring.

If the term keyring term is making it confusing think of the keyring
program as a password storage program. You want to keep your password
safe from on lookers. By entering the password into the prompt if
verifies your access to the keyring and unlocks all of you stored

Hope this helps
Good Luck
