Keychain access dialog hidden behind FR

My 10.5.1 Intel Mini running Sapphire Beta 4.2 needs to go via an authenticating proxy for web access (i.e. I have a Web Proxy configured under Network system prefs, the proxy prompts for a username and password which I keep in the Keychain). The first time an app needs access to this keychain item, I get the usual Keychain Access dialog (~"allow this app access to ..."). I would normally click "Always allow" and that's that (well, till the app is updated...).

Now, when I start Sapphire's “Import All Data” it appears to hang - logging in via ssh and killing Front Row briefly shows that the Keychain Access dialog was waiting for me in the background (ps conforms this: SecurityAgent? is running at the time).

As a workaround, I fired up Keychain Access and set the proxy credentials item's access control to "Allow all applications". (If I were to allow just the specific application, which would it be?) Subsequently, all seems well.

No crash log was generated.

The app is Front Row, located: /System/Library/CoreServices/Front?

BTW, you can kill frontrow by hitting cmd-opt-esc and it quits immediately.

Closing since this doesn't seem to really be a bug report, but rather a comment/question.
