Gnome-keyring fills my auth.log

Hi all, my root partition on Ubuntu 18.04 suddenly became completely full, because of a huge /var/log/auth.log (>300 Gb). Indeed, the following entry: Code: gnome-keyring-daemon[2466]: couldn’t accept new control request: Too many open files repeats several times each second! I cleaned the log (with Code: >/var/log/auth.log ), but I would like to understand what’s going on and resolve it, since it will fill it again. To be honest, I don’t know if I really use gnome-keyring or not. It may be useful to know that I cannot physically access the PC now, so I use it remotely via vnc (will the ssh authentication pass via the keyring?). For the same reason, I do not dare rebooting it… Thanks! Stefano
