I am looking for an LTO tape library. Do you have one to spare?

seahorse security files touched by this commit GNOME application for managing encryption keys (PGP, SSH)
Add some improved logic to seahorse to have it gracefully fall back to insecure
memory usage for sensitive storage when gnome-keyring doesn't have the
privileges
to use mlock(2)/munlock(2). This behavior is much more useful than the
ungraceful
dereference of a NULL pointer (and subsequent crash of the seahorse programs)
that
currently is employed.

This patch makes seahorse (and seahorse-agent, seahorse-daemon, etc.) warn the
user
about having to use secure memory so that consumers such as Evolution and other
software can make use of seahorse.

A larger and more valuable project would be to provide some sort of unprivileged
user mlock(2) support in the base system. Some ideas are currently being
discussed.
