    Unhappy Keychain broken - 'unknown (locked)' - Please help me fix this
    Hey everyone. Every time I do something that uses a password, I get dialog like:



    I enter the password, check "Remember" or "Store in keychain". But it doesn't seem to work. I just get asked again.

    All my stored passwords are gone =(
    ftp, websites, augh. this horrible!

    I looked in keychain.app and see the following screens:



    The menu shows "null":



    I tried a verify/repair and get:



    Is there any way to fix this, or know whats even wrong?

    Giulio, I'm at school at the moment so don't have much time to research this. I found this and, while it might not be the same problem as yours, I thought I'd post it here anyway in case it sends you off on a winning tangent.

    Thanks for the reply MHC.

    I figured it out, sorta. The keychain was not in my keychains list. The keychain in ~/Library/keychains/ was named "login_renamed.keychain". So I dragged that into the keychains list in keychain.app, unlocked it.... and things started to work again.

    I don't know how it renamed in the first place though.

    Can I give myself rep??
