The package is libgnome-keyring 3.12.0-1 on GNU/Hurd. Hurd is more
restrictive than GNU/Linux on mlock()/munlock(), so you have to be root
for the tests: (This is the same problem as for kFreeBSD in #628383)

The tests pass and the package builds fine with the two tests above run
as root. Currently it is flagged as FTBFS due to this issue.
