[Pkg-telepathy-maintainers] Bug#654854: empathy: relies on gnome-keyring enabling pkcs11 module

Package: empathy
Version: 3.2.2-1+b1
Severity: normal

I'm running empathy under XFCE without gnome services activated on

In this case, empathy seems to use dbus service activation, which by
default runs gnome-keyring-daemon with:

Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --foreground --components=secrets

However, in recent versions, empathy needs the pkcs11 support too, for
certificate validation, and so unhappiness ensues, since there's no
/tmp/keyring-*/pkcs, just a /tmp/keyring-*/control

I'm filing this against empathy on the advice of Josselin Mouette, but
I'm not really sure if this is empathy's fault for relying on interfaces
that aren't guaranteed to be present with the given dbus service
activation or if it's a bug in g-k-d for not enabling all modules when
activated via dbus.
