My problem occurs regardless of whether or not I sign the message. If I try to send it signed, the program freezes,
and I have to kill it forcefully (hit the close button, after a short wait KWin says the window is not responding and asks
if I want to kill it). The GUI is blocked and won't redraw, BTW. If I try to send it unsigned it does the same. If I try to
send using a different identity that doesn't have an associated key, it does the same. So it appears that whetever is
causing this is happening before the code that brings up the window asking for the GPG password.
