I had a similar problem at my last job connecting Evolution to a
Windows Exchange Server for my email.  Eventually, I found that if I
told Evolution NOT to remember my password, but I input it manually
every time, then the system would not pester me about the default
keyring password.

For the record, I never did figure out the problem, and my requests
for assistance from the gnome list went nowhere - I suspect no one
there knew how to get past this, either.  I tried creating new
keyrings, all the passwords I could think of for the default keyring
(none of them worked, including no password), and I found this
workaround to be sufficient for what I needed.
