I had never heard of seahorse. Looking at it, it seems to me like it is a
GUI for using GNOME keyring to manage things like your SSH keys etc. I do
not think that is what you need. GNOME keyring already provides a GUI for
managing your keyring and this is tied to your login session. What we did
for our CollabNet binaries was write a small command line tool that uses
the GNOME keyring API but gives you a simple command line interface. I do
not know why GNOME does not provide one. I would be happy to share the
source code if you want it.

With this tool you can use the command line tool to create a keyring as
well as unlock it. The latter is what you would want to do when you login
(after starting the keyring-daemon).
