Thanks for the additional information Thomas and Christoph, I was not
aware that this issue impacts passphrase entry on the LXDE and XFCE
spins.  The gnome-keyring maintainer, Tomáš Bžatek (cc'd), has been
notified, and will post an update to the bug soon.

When the release criteria were revised for Fedora 13, we were very open
that they relate to the default desktop environment, unless otherwise
stated.  We wanted to pilot the new criteria against a manageable
package set before opening the firehose and extending it to all spins.
This wasn't out of malice or spite, just a method of sanely rolling out
the improved criteria in such a way we could manage the process.  We'll
be looking to improve this once Fedora 13 is released.

Under the current release criteria [1], this issue does not qualify as a
release blocker.  This doesn't mean the issue cannot be fixed prior to
release, or as a day0 update.  In fact, it seems like tbzetak is already
working the problem.  It does mean that this issue alone would not
result in a 1 week slip of Fedora 13.
