I had a user connect to a remote server (via nautilus, Ctrl+l, smb://url). Was prompted for a password like this, and I said "remember forever". Now I have got a new user with extended permissions which I need, but my old user is still active on their system, so nautilus doesn't prompt for the new password (which I need to change user). How can I reset the password?

The password manager for GNOME Keyring is seahorse (which should show up as "Passwords and Encryption Keys" in your program list).
