In Squeeze, Gnome key-ring can be disabled in the drop down menus by
Then look under the Startup Programs tab
There you will find three check boxes that mention GNOME Keyring in
their description line.
Un-check them, Close, and re-boot
This does not actually remove gnome-keyring, but it does allow lower
