You might also have to install:

libpam-gnome-keyring - PAM module to unlock the GNOME keyring upon login

Description: PAM module to unlock the GNOME keyring upon login
  gnome-keyring is a daemon in the session, similar to ssh-agent,
  and other applications can use it to store passwords and other
  sensitive information.
  This package contains a PAM module that will automatically unlock the
  keyrings using your login password, making gnome-keyring usage
  transparent without losing its security benefits.
  When installed, this module will automatically be used by GDM and
  gnome-screensaver to unlock your keyrings when logging in and when
  unlocking the screen saver.

I had to add that for Ubuntu Hardy, not sure if later Ubuntu versions 
automatically include it.  Looks like Jaunty does, unless I added it and
