How to disable gnome-keyring in xubuntu

It seems like everytime I upgrade my computer, gnome keyring manager gets reinstalled. I don't want it. I can remember my passwords and I don't want the stupid keyring manager asking for a password everytime I try to do something simple, like commit a file with svn.

First, rename /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon to /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon.bak.

Find the running keyring daemon and kill it:
ps ax | grep keyring
kill -9 pid

Then remove the keyrings:
rm -rf ~/.gnome2/keyrings
