After login w. Fingerprint Chrome still asks for a keyring pass

XUbutu 16.04, fingerprint-gui 1.09

After login with Fingerprint Chrome still asks for a keyring password.

When I login with a password Chrome doesn't ask for a keyring pass.

In Application Autostart I have two PolicyKit Authentication Agents:
- PolicyKit Authentication Agent (I turned it off, didn't help)
- PolicyKit Authentication Agent with Fingerprint Autthentication (always turned on)

I even set in seahorse the same password for "Chrome Safe Storage" as my login pass, but it also didn't help.

Is it a bug or a "feature"?

...This is a feature ;-)
To decrypt something like gnome-keyring or encrypted homedir after login you need a password. Therefor we have the "Password" tab in Fingerprint-gui.
