"The solution I found:

you can delete the keyring that you have forgotten the password for which results in you being prompted for a new keyring password.

on the command line use locate default.keyring to find the location of your keyring folder.
delete the keyring you have forgotten the password for.
restart machine.
next time you access a program you will be prompted to enter a new password for the keyring"

You can use seahorse to manage your keyrings (yes, plural; you can have more than one). It can create and delete keyrings, as well as change the password of an existing keyring.
