avoid gnome-keyring asking for password on resume from hibernate

On my laptop I use the hibernate quite often while moving from one place to another downtown Berlin, but since Karmic ugrade I had to put a pass not only for having back the shell but also for the gnome-keyring and this means that my lap could not connect to network untill I typed both the pass... 
The solution is quite simple since gconf-editor but it took me a while to figure out how to do that so I thought to share:

from a shell invoke the gconf-editor 
go to 
and uncheck the gnome_keyring_hibernate

that's it !

  1. works in rhel 6, but I think passwords are then stored unencrypted during hibernation (depends on use case i guess)
