expected results:

my encfs password would be stored in gnome-keyring, so that I wouldn't have to keep typing it

    I have the same problem. I'am using Ubuntu 12.04. I quess the problem is that no keyring exists yet. I prompt asking for a new keyring password opens. After providing it, it crashes and the next time I'm asked for the password again.

    ~/projects/src/gnome-encfs$ gnome-encfs -a ~/Dropbox/.encrypted ~/Private
    EncFS password: 
    Mount at login [Y/n]: Y

    Ok i found the problem.

    It isn't linked to gnome-encfs but to the keyring itself.

    If the /.gnome2/keyrings dir doesn't exist it crashes when trying to create a new keyring.
