This appears to be the same bug, and for some weird reason this has been
marked invalid/closed. They seem to suggest that it is a cryptlug bug.

pinentry/gpg-agent in sid...

the copyright file or google search... however, most upstream authors do
not wish to be contacted directly to private email.
