  "Unlock Private Key" dialog mysteriously refers to "an application"

Status in GNOME Keyring:
Status in gnome-keyring package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-keyring

  Ubuntu 8.04, all updates installed

  Several times after I log in, an "Unlock Private Key" dialog pops up.
  The dialog says something like "An application is trying to access the
  private key 'id_rsa', but it is locked", and asks me to enter my
  passphrase. (I'm not sure of the exact wording, because while this
  dialog is open I can focus other windows but not type into them, and
  nor am I allowed to take a screenshot.)

  This question is useless, because it doesn't identify the application
  that wants to access my key. It should gave the .desktop name of the
  application if there is one, or the name of the binary otherwise.
