That's because of gnome-keyring's designer's stupid arrogance not to allow 
passwordless keyrings (unlike KWallet which empowers the user). Instead, we're 
stuck with some PAM hackery which allows reusing the login password, which 
obviously won't work if you use autologin, and which doesn't appear to be 
working properly with KDM even if you don't. This is part of why I'm really 
hoping for a KDE alternative to nm-applet which supports KWallet to come out
