I use the keyring manager to deal with that. I only set it up on the
laptop to store the wireless key which is quite long. It burped a few
times when I first set it up but its been good for a while now. It
actually holds keys to a few access points that I have used. Its been
working quite well for me. I know that some have a less enthusiastic
opinion of it.
