openSUSE 11.0 - Keyring does not store password

Hi, this is a newbie question:
I’m running suse 11.0 with gnome desktop interface. I have the following issues with keyring application:

  1. Once the system is started for the 1st time, it asks for the master keyring password to access the network. I realize this is a normal behavior upon startup. However, after the initial password request, every time I want to run an application that requires password (i.e. Yast2, root terminal), I get a popup asking for the root password. So, what is the use of the keyring if it does not save the passwords? is this normal?

  2. How can I look and edit the passwords in the keyring? the facility in the Yast2 only allows for addition of keyrings and no provisions for adding or editing the passwords. What application do I need for this task?

Thanks for the help.
