This did not even start the gnome-keyring-daemon.

Here is my file

eval 'gnome-keyring-daemon'

As you can see, I only moved the '.

Still did not work even though the daemon was started. Executed it from
the command line and got a missing libgail-gnome. So I installed that.
Now I get the following

Bonobo accessibility support initialized
GTK Accessibility Module initialized
CalDAV Eplugin starting up ...

When I enter the password, it goes and gets the mail one time. Next time
still have to enter the email address again.

Seems to me this bandaid is really a bandaid that works depending on the
time of day, temperature, and phase of the moon. Wished Novell would fix
it pronto so one does not have to spend so much time to get something to
work that should work out of the box. If this is the result of Novell's
interoperability efforts, I don't think Microsoft has much to worry
