MySQL Workbench won't store passwords although gnome-keyring is installed and up and running. Every other application can store passwords. Seahorse can access passwords so deamon is running

As i see someone reported same bug(#61627) but it`s closed for no reason

How to repeat:
1. establish connection to server and check to store password
2. close workbench and reopen
3. open existing connection and it will ask for password again

Do you use gnome? If not, can you describe the exact steps you use to start gnome-keyring and then workbench? Are they started in the same terminal?

It`s on opensuse 11.4 , on Centos 6 it was working, but here it`s not showing any error even when running from terminal, i`m using gnome and for sure gnome-keyring is started & working (other applications ie. Network Manager is working with it with no problems)

I'm afraid that we're not supporting Opensuse anymore, can you please try using one of the OS's supported
