[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#646938: xfce4-session fails to export env-variables from gnome-keyring-daemon (ssh-agent and others)

Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.8.2-1
Severity: normal

Dear Xfce Maintainers,

I just switch from gnome3 to xfce4 and I am very happy to get back a
usable and fast interface.

But I have troubles with xfce-session:

* I try to customize the autostart conf using "Xfce 4 Session Manager".
I checked "gnome ssh-agent" and "gnome secret store service" options in
the list but it seem to have no effect and the ssh-agent does not work
when I restart my xfce session.

* I try to manually run "export `gnome-keyring-daemon`" in a terminal
and the ssh-agent works fine. So I try to add this command as a custom
entry in the autostart list but it does not work.

Do you have an idea about this issue? Maybe I forget to
install/configure something?

Regards, Thomas.
