[Bug 1174162] Re: chrome-browser makes gnome-keyring-daemon use 100% cpu


I have this problem only on Ubuntu with automatic login. Even ater whiping out password db ad recreating it.
The same database makes no problem when I have to enter password before login...

Bug description:
  After upgrading to 13.04, when starting the chromium browser, the
  gnome-keyring-daemon runs at full CPU load and the chromium-browser
  has no access to the stored passwords.

  The issue seems to be known
  (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=98601). I'm
  personally a bit surprised that Ubuntu 13.04 was released with such a
  serious problem.

  The frequently proposed workaround (e.g.
  doesn't work because (a) there is no .gnome2/keyrings any more and (b)
  it's rather inresponsible to store your passwords unencryted.

  I found that killing gnome-keyring-server several times eventually gives you a working system.
