Password for '(null)' GNOME keyring


In the latest Ubuntu (running in VirtualBox on Mac), when trying to do svn co --username=scidb_05 etc., I was asked for “Password for ‘(null)’ GNOME keyring” and couldn’t get past it. If anyone else runs into this, what fixed it for me was:
rm ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring


Just wanted to say that I had the same problem with svn and your solution fixed it. Thanks!
