I've got key database (called default) on my ubuntu and it still asks me about password that I don't know. How can I turn it off or just get pass ?

Are you talking about the Ubuntu keyring? If you've forgotten the password (which can be different from your login password) you may have to delete the default keyring and create a new one. I'm not sure there is a way to recover that without brute force. –  skub Mar 20 '11 at 16:20

If you're running gnome and you just want to delete the key ring and start over, you could just delete it.

WARNING THIS WILL DELETE YOUR KEYRING AND ALL THE CONTENTS!

rm ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring
