Are you sure? I've had a similar setup for years (i.e. gdm auto login) 
and I remember I always had to enter my password when applications 
like Eovlution requested access to the keyring. Yes, this made auto 
login quite pointless, so I changed back to normal login which indeed 
automatically unlocks the keyring.
