I use a program called KeePass to keep track of my passwords.  It has a
linux port called KeePassX, as well.  It stores the password in an
encrypted database and when the user requests it, copies it to the
clipboard.  After 20 seconds, the clipboard is cleared.  KeePass can
also be configured to lock the workspace after a certain period of time
