maybe someone knows what is going on here:
for some time know (since whenever `gpg' started to use this litte pinentry GUI for querying pass
phrases) I have the rather sporadically reappearing situation that gpg interaction fails with a "no
pinentry" error. this always happens out of the blue after weeks/months of problem-free behaviour.
the only way I have found to get it work again is reboot (this concerns machines which are usually
running 24/7) ...
question: is this a known problem? why is gpg suddenly no longer able to find the pinentry app to
use (as it seems is the case -- or is it a problem of the pinentry app itself??)? can/should I fix
it via some configuration setting?
