AFAIK nothing. If you uninstall Skype then it gets uninstalled. What the
keyring manage does with the key data is opaque to me, as it is intended
to be. I suspect it keeps it so if you reinstall Skype you'll be back
where you started.

If this is the Gnome2 kayring manager, perhaps this helps:

It's a problem. Everyone in business bitches about it, but no-one is
prepared to make the move.
