As Im trying to do this keyring popped up. Apparently it locks everything
on the desktop until you either click cancel several times or put in
the password.
I typed in the password - just for fun -> IT WORKED!
Its not the system pass but the one I had to create with Skype.
So, you cant copy and paste the password but ONLY type it in.
Uh.. interesting.
