How to unlock the dfault keyring upon login?

Hi all!

First off, I ask this in this section rather than the Security one, simply because it is bound to have more exposure.

So the subject pretty much summirizes what I need/want to do. I upgraded from F10 to 11, no big deal have done that almost a dozen times now , and in the process I recycled my /home directory, however now the default keyring asks for a password upon login to unlock it (is it due to the keyring having a different PW than the account?). I remember back in F8 this was introduced and you would also have to unlock the default keyring upon login, no matter what you did, then by Sulphur there was a check box so that the PW was not asked for again. I expected to see that same checkbox in the PW prompt for F11, but it would seem that either the GNOME guys or the Fedora GNOME developers have decided to take away such checkbox. Now I have to unlock the default keyring every time I login (good security, but a pain the behind in the long run), so, any way to accomplish this or should I delete an recreate the default keyring for this to stop being a "problem"?

To delete just the keyring (you will lose all passwords) by below (non root)
rm -rf ~/.gnome2/keyrings/*

Thanks, DM. As soon as I get the time I'll go about doing it.

And indeed, the problem is still present in F11 when installed from DVD, go figure
