gnome keyring won't unlock keys after change of root password

After changing my root-password, I suddenly can't access the gnome-keyring for my every-day user account. (I did NOT change anything on my everyday user account). When I login to "everyday-user" (which is not part of the admin group), gnome-keyring pops up and tells me that the login-password doen't match the password for the keyring.
I cant find no way what so ever to unlock the keyring - have been trying the regular password for "everyday-user", the old and the new root-passwords and even the loginpassword for another user who is part of the admin group. The root-password, everyday user password and the password for every other user on the system works just fine everywhere else, i't just the keyring passphrase that has stopped working / changed / something strange.

I's quite stange, since I didn't change anything concerning the every-day user account.
