Any advice for a tri-platform, multi-computer, maybe not hashed, password manager for a large volume of ftp/ssh/ and misc logins?

I have a lot of various logins I need to keep track of. Most are ftp/ssh so I use kde's network connections manager, and things like keychain in osx. The problem is that if used as the main storage, the passwords are hashed and basically unrecoverable. Using the same machine or operating system all the time is not an option. And of course these things are not linked together in any sane way; its a matter of remembering to enter them at the same time in three places.
Wiki type solutions are probably out, as I do not want to be storing all my sensitive information under one potentially insecure password, online. I have considered flat text files (which takes care of my misc logins) but this seems almost as bad. Any methods, scripts, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
