A couple of times a box has come up on my screen that says:

mdwrite wants to use the "metadata" keychain. please enter the keychain password.


So far, I have just pressed cancel.


Anyone got any ideas what this is? And what I should do? So far, I have just pressed cancel.

I have never encountered this pop-up box prior to Lion...
