After few weeks of uptime yesterday i rebooted my laptop. After that - i discovered that there is no password in gnome-keyring. gnome-keyring segfault and didn't work. I restored ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring from backup from last week, but - it didn't help. gnome-keyring still segfault.

In desperation - i restored version from few months ago. It helps - gnome-keyring start working correct, but - there aren't my recent passwords.

It's not a very big problem, most of passwords are up-to-date, but - there is another issue. When i start google-chrome - it starts, then gnome-keyring-daemon start working with 100% cpu usage, and after few minuts - gnome-keyring slows, but google-chrome hangs - didn't respond to mouse and keybord. killall chrome helps ;)

I have read passwords from my last backup of login.keyring by simple python script and i can use it in another browser - but it's not a usefull solution. Does anybody have any idea how to: - recover recent passwords from .keyring file which hangs gnome-keyring-daemon - fix connection between gnome-keyring and google chrome?
