Edited; hopefully to make more clear.

An old login password (twice since replaced) still seems to be the Gnome2 Key Storage password. Upon changing my (sole admin/user) login password (using System Settings GUI) I expected Ubuntu to update this password in the same way that it seems to try to change the LUKS password. Perhaps that expectation is an error.

As recent login password changes haven't been flawless (I posted a separate question about that here) I wonder:

  • if these passwords should be harmonised by Ubuntu during login password change
  • how I change the Gnome2 Key Storage password manually.

That is two questions, I know, but they're linked to resolving the same issue of harmonised passwords forking which is dangerous for less knowledgable users.

  • Gnome password and LUKS passwords are two different animals. – user68186 Aug 27 '18 at 11:57
  • Quite. As I stated in my question... I'm looking for answers though. – Little me Aug 27 '18 at 12:51
  • If you have two questions, ask them as separate questions. It is not clear which password you are asking about. – user68186 Aug 27 '18 at 12:53
