I'm running an up-to-date Ubuntu 10.10. In secrets.el, I see

   (secrets-get-alias "default")
    => "login"

Maybe you have changed the default alias via `secrets-set-alias'?

Anyway, I recommend to use the collection returned by (secrets-get-alias
"default"). There's is no need to hardwire it as "login".
