Someone suggested installing seahorse and that didn’t do a bit of good. This pop-up shows up about 15-20 minutes after boot-up. If I’m in the middle of playing OpenArena, it pops up, my OpenArena screen is resized and pushed off to the side, and this thing demands my password (same password I used to log in). Of course, as I’m busy trying to pacify the pop-up, my player gets killed.

Sorry that command was run on a Debian machine, the proper output on xbuntu is
gnome-keyring: /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.desktop

I have reported a bug on Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring/+bug/1022322

Please mark it as affecting you if you experience this issue.
