I think that there is a bug with auto-locking my keychain in Mac OS X 10.4. I wanted to automatically lock my keychain, so my laptop would ask for my authorization in order to get a password out of the keychain. This is in addition to my current setting where I get asked for my password when the screen saver dismisses.
When I enable it, I do get asked for my authorization when an application wants to get a password from the keychain. The problem is when the screen saver is activated on my laptop. When I try to wake my computer up from the screen saver, the password dialog doesn't appear. I have to restart the computer in order to use it.
This problem goes away when I disable the auto-locking of my keychain.
