Bug#854318: gnome-keyring: Attempts to provide ssh-agent

Package: gnome-keyring
Version: 3.20.0-3
Severity: important

A recent upgrade to gnome-keyring appears to have resulted in it once
again trying to provide a SSH agent.  Since I use a gnupg smartcard to
store my authentication keys for SSH (which is supported by GnuPG but
not by gnome-keyring) this breaks my ability to SSH into most remote
systems, including things like preventing me from doing anything on

I have previously removed /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop
(which is still removed) but it appears that this is now triggred by
systemd somehow.
