The keyring can store passwords and encryption keys for you. They are protected with your login password and stored safely via encryption. It's like putting all your keys in a safe that just has one key. Every time you use an application (like e.g. Ubuntu One) for which you have stored a password for in the key ring, the key ring enters it for you. Beside the comfort factor that helps to counteract key-loggers and the like, as they need physical access to your key-ring data and your account password.
Normally, if you don't have auto-login activated, the keyring is unlocked, when you login to L/Uubuntu using your account's regular password. Since you seem to have enabled auto-login on start-up (just a guess), the keyring has to be unlocked manually with your accounts password (once on first use for each session) .
What you can try:
Auto unlock option
Usually there is an option to "Automatically unlock this keyring when I log in":
Unset keyring password
For obvious reasons this is very insecure. If no one but you has physical access to your computer this could be the way to go.
