KeyChain integration does not search for password in keychains other than login

Reported by Pepe Barbe | September 10th, 2011 @ 09:09 PM | in 2.0.18 (closed)

The steps to reproduce are as follows:

  1. Save GPG password in KeyChain
  2. Open Mac OS X's KeyChain.app
  3. Move GnuPG entry in login keychain to a new keychain.

Try to sign an email and you'll be prompted for password. If you move the GnuPG entry back to the login keychain you won't be prompted for password.

The way it should work is:

  • Always save in login keychain
  • Always look in login keychain first
  • If not found in login, search other keychains
  • If keychain is locked, prompt for unlock.

That way users can keep lower the security of the login keychain for convenience and have higher security information in other keychains.
