Just had a brief look at knetworkmanager-vpn.cpp. k-n-m already does
exactly what I suggested ;-)
Problem is, that the path to gnome-keyring-daemon is hardcoded to
/opt/gnome/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon. That's why it didn't work on Debian
where it is /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon.
I can easily ship a patch for the Debian package but maybe it would be a
better idea to remove the hardcoded path (and replace it with a
configure switch?).


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
