When ubuntu 8.10 reboots a keyring password is required before connecting to the wireless network. Absolutely not acceptable for many obvious reasons. Rumors say it can be fixed by deleting /home/YOUR NAME/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring and will properly be rebuilt on reboot the next time around.

It did not really work as I had hoped. When next I booted the network was not found. I had to make a new connection and a new keyring password. This time I left the password blank. I got a warning message or two saying this is extremely unsafe and forced me to verify I was insane for choosing such an unsafe path. However after doing this it worked fine on subsequent reboots.

Yeah, Ubuntu 8.10 is buggy. This is not the only problem. The people should test their code behind the releases more than they are currently doing.
