When I'm using zh_CN.utf8, the keyrings are saved in ~/.gnome2/keyrings/默认密钥.keyring, ~/.gnome2/keyrings/默认密钥_1.keyring, and so on.

But when I want to access to them, for example, in nm-applet, it outputs:
** Message: <info> No keyring secrets found for Auto AAP17-F2/802-11-wireless-security; asking user.

When I try to edit them via seahorse, seahorse outputs like this:
(seahorse:6532): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1 char 111: Invalid UTF-8 encoded text in name - not valid ' \xffffffe9\xffffffbb\xffffff98\xffffffe8\xffffffae\xffffffa4\xffffffe5\xffffffaf\xffffff86\xffffffe9\xffffff92\xffffffa5'

I think it's a problem about encoding or related. I removed ~/.gnome2/keyrings/, and restart Arch with en_US.utf8, and it just works well.

Additional info:
gnome-keyring 2.30.3-2
libgnome-keyring 2.30.1-2

Steps to reproduce:
1. Change locale to zh_CN.utf8 in /etc/rc.conf
2. Rename ~/.gnome2/keyrings
3. Restart computer
4. Connect to wireless network via network manager, and save password with gnome-keyring
5. Disconnect wireless, and Reconnect, it will ask you for password again
This task depends upon

Seems already fixed upstream, in this commit:
I'm not sure if it works.

i don't intend to backport it only for couples of days/weeks. gnome 2.32 is close to release date

Oh, I see. It's before September 27th. I'll wait for it, thanks.
