Are you running Gnome3. Could you please check the version of gnome-keyring you are running? You can check with: dpkg -l gnome-keyring – duanedesign Jul 5 '11 at 13:31

Their was a server side issue that was breaking the control panel. The fix was rolled out yesterday so you should see this issue resolved. Let us know if this is still an issue for you.
