Stupid question: what is the keyring password. - After getting the message, that your current password does not match keyring (very old resource), I tried to create a new keyring password, but after doing this, neither my old user password, nor the new keyring password, nor the keyring's name let me allow being logged in. So I needed to log in as root and change my user password again.

Try to delete (or better rename) the files in the ~/.gnome2/keyrings directory

mv ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyringold
mv ~/.gnome2/keyrings/user.keystore ~/.gnome2/keyrings/user.keystoreold

logout and login again.
