Gnome-keyring not unlocking

Hi there,

I recently switched from running i3 on Xorg to running sway (Wayland)
due to issues that I encountered with a new version of a software I
really need to use when running Xorg. Everything went well except for
the Nextcloud desktop synchronization tool which refuses to log in due
to not being able to read/write to a locked key ring. Trying to unlock
the key ring manually fails (seahorse simply does nothing when clicking
on "unlock").

The deamon is running. Issuing `ps -aux | grep keyring` proves so. The
strange ting is that my /tmp/xdgdir/keyring directory only lists sockets
for control and pkcs11 while the daemon was started with

eval $(/usr/local/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start
export GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL=/tmp/xdgdir/keyring

This is my content of the .local/share/keyrings directory:

➜ l .local/share/keyrings

I'm not having any clue left on what's going on and would appreciate any
