  gnome keyring goes awol after a few logout/logins

Status in gnome-keyring package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  First symptom noticed: That *sometimes* after logging in, owncloud-
  client would fail to connect to the server, after a delay asking
  instead for a password with the message something like (sorry don't
  have it in front of me) "keyring service unavailable".

  Second symptom, on trying to start Google Chrome (Chromium too), it
  would fail to sign in to my Google account for sync, with a long delay
  on startup while it gives up on that.

  This never happens on the first login session since the last boot. It
  may not happen on the second, but usually by the third login, it
  happens. I'm not certain of the pattern except it seems always to be
  fine in the *first* session.

  A reboot seemed to be needed to resolve this. But just now I tried
  instead from the commandline:

  gnome-keyring-daemon -r -f

  I'm sure -d would do too, but I wanted to watch it. Sure enough on
  trying to relaunch owncloud-client, I am *then* asked for my password
  to unlock the keyring as, it says, it didn't get unlocked when I
  logged in. Then both owncloud-client and google-chrome are now able to
  sign in, and I see associated messages from the gnome-keyring-daemon
  in the terminal where I'm running it.

  Presumably the daemon is not being reliably relaunched when needed, on
  successive logins to the gnome desktop.
