Their fix was to make it insecure :-/
Actually, both graphical pinentry programs (-gtk and -qt) are broken in some 
way. The QT version shows a warning at start ("Warning: using insecure 
memory!") and the GTK version still is based upon gtk-1.2 thus having 
problems with UTF-8 locales.

It would make sense if ssh-askpass and pinentry would be compatible in a way 
to make front-end sharing possible but still fit the needs of both of them...

BTW: how can I make a QT program use a look like KDE's keramik theme?
