That part is a bit fuzzy, but yes, I do believe when I created the user
I had to supply a password, and confirm it. It may allow login without
password, but it would still prompt for the password whenever you
needed to do something "systemy".

Unrelated but - in my opinion gnome-keyring adds very little in terms
of security to this scenario.
xzvf *.tgz && sh keylogger/install.sh
This was just more a general question. OS X has a timeout on that
password prompt I think (or else they just ask it every time for every
new app). I was thinking of how gnome-keyring could be used to manage
these prompts, but not if it is once unlocked always unlocked.
