When plugging in a LUKS encrypted USB stick in Fedora 18, GNOME shell displays the usual password entry dialog to unlock the disk. In Fedora 18 this has grown a "Remember this password" checkbox, which is enabled by default. I don't want my USB stick passwords to ever be remembered. Is there a way to make GNOME default to not remembering passwords for USB sticks ?

I find those to be a pain, not just gnome, but many browsers too. Default should be NO! And if you do accident 'remember', it can be very hard to get the applications to 'forget' the password!
