Okay thanks, although I notice you filed a bug only against "gnome":

  * Why only gnome?  If it is important to have a gtk2 dialog then
shouldn't other desktops have it too?

  * Since this bug affects tasksel, why not also address it in tasksel,
such as in task-desktop?

  * Why only severity 'wishlist' if it is blocking a bug of IMHO higher

OK, I've looked and could not find a reference to this in policy.  But I
felt it was common sense, and policy shouldn't need to exist for such

A minimal no-desktop install should not include ~70 additional packages
with ~30MB download size and taking ~100MB space, if they add no extra
functionality for that use case.  (Also curious, what will gnupg2 do if
only pinentry-gtk2 is installed but no desktop is running?)

I'm not saying it's gnupg-agent's fault this situation occurred, but it
is IMHO a serious enough problem affecting d-i/tasksel, to need to fix
it before release?
