Follow up and observation on my own question

Just switched to Xfce recently and have run across a couple of things
that appear to be start up service related when compared to GNOME.
First, when building a package locally using osc, I end up with an "401
Authentication" error. Pocking around a bit this appears to be
gnome-keyring related. However, I have gnome-keyring-daemon running and
marked as "autostart". When I used GNOME I didn't do anything special,
osc just worked. Anyone has any idea what I need to do to get the
keyring usage working again?
Second, also authentication related, I now need to enter my passphrase
when using key-authenticated ssh login. I suppose GNOME by default
starts an ssh agent thus that the passphrase only gets entered once? How
do I accomplish this with Xfce. The "autostratup" has an entry for "SSH
Key Agent". What am I missing?
When I turn on "Launch GNOME services on startup" in the "Advanced"
tab of the "Session and Startup" settings I can get the behavior
back I am used to in GNOME, i.e. when I ssh to a machine for the
first time I get a dialog box that lets me type in my passphrase.
Once I do this the key is "unlocked" and I can log into any machine
without needing to enter my passphrase again.
However, enabeling this also means that I am running more stuff than
I probably want.
I compared the list of processes running with the GNOME services
launced and without and compared them. However, nothing sticks out
as providing this nice "unlock the key" feature. Thus I am not
certain how to enable just that service to allow me to disable the
"Launch GNOME services on startup" setting again.
you shouldn't use that setting, g-k-d is started through the PAM
module so that no additional password needs to be entered to
unlock it. It also needs to be initialized from the session and I
suspect something isn't working right there (either the xdg
autostart or session startup script) but I haven't had the time
to investigate it yet. Feel free to open a bug to track this,
it'll be needed anyway for a SRU.
