Maybe if you're not using 4.6 you have an old version of gnome-keyring

It doesn't work; "SSH Key Agent" doesn't even show up as an option
among the autostarted applications in xfce4-session-settings .
And I don't think that starting it this way could export
$SSH_AUTH_SOCK to the session (gnome-keyring-daemon just prints it on
stdout together with other variables, and it's up to the caller to
export them).
Moreover, I think the proper way to decide whether gnome-keyring
should act as a ssh agent would be via gconf (this is a quite minor
