iChat forgets saved passwords after reboot
Searched the Lion forum and Google and couldn't find anything on this.
Every time I reboot my iMac running Lion, iChat needs me to re-enter my passwords for my AIM, Gtalk, and Yahoo! IM accounts. This only happens when I reboot -- that is, if I quit and re-open iChat, it works fine. Anybody else having this?
I have a clean install of Lion
I have Restore windows when quitting/re-openning enabled
I have the passwords saved in the Mail, Contacts and Calendars Pref pane
I also direct iChat to save my passwords in the keychain every time I re-enter them
Having no similar saved password issues in Mail, iCal, etc.
Having no other problems with the shiny new iChat, and this is of course only a minor nuisance (I only reboot once/day), just curious to know if anybody else has run into this and if there are any solutions floating about.

Before doing any of these steps, see if Keychain First Aid helps: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...6/en/9081.html
If that doesn't work;
If it still fails;
If all of that doesn't work, your last resort is to try creating a new user account, and then reinstalling OS X.
