  missing options in seahorse-tool

Status in seahorse package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Release: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
  Package version: 3.8.0-0ubuntu2

  When you click on an encrypted file to open it, the dialog window
  asking for the passphrase to unlock the secret key does not offer the
  options to forget the password, like in previous versions.

  On Precise, for instance, you were given the options to forget it
  after X minutes, or to forget it if idle for X minutes.

  On Trusty, the only selectable option is "automatically unlock this keyring whenever i'm logged in", which is crazy.
  The result is that if you unlock the secret key, it stays unlocked until you log out, which is a bit less crazy but not good.

  A workaround to avoid this sillyness is to click on the cancel button and then enter the passphrase on the second dialog window that opens right after. This way the secret key works only once for the encrypted file you opened.
  I think this is just silly, dangerous and a regression from previous versions.
