enter password for default keyring to unlock

Today I was fiddling around my Ubuntu ( jaunty ) desktop . I installed twitux , a twitter client and was happy with it. I switched off the machine and went for lunch. When I came back, twitux started asking this.

"enter password for default keyring to unlock
The application 'Twittux
wants access to the default keyring but it is locked"

I tried out my default login password. But could not start twitux.

I searched on net and finally arrived at a solution.

Here it is.
$ cd ~/.gnome2/keyrings
$ rm deault.keyring
That fixed my problem. The next time I started twitux, it asked me to setup a new password for the key ring.
