Re: Keyring Help
One thing to try is to open Passwords and Encryption Keys. They have, I think, moved this in Meerkat to either System > Preferences, or System > Administration. It used to be in Applications > Accessories.
In there you should see Passwords: Login. Right click on that and then reset the password to the same as you have always used. and see if that makes a difference. So if your password is "phil", put "phil" in as the old password, then enter "phil" as the new password.
This may reset it and have it work properly. We can but hope.
