See bugs#47833 for instance. This is only minor, but still is inconvenient.
The biggest problem was with selecting a users public key when encrypting
a message. It wouldn't list the user names I wanted to see. I filled
this as bug #39793, but that has since been closed. I assume that
this means the problem should be fixed in potato, but haven't checked.
FYI, this is from the bug report:
Now it gives me a menu of keys to choose from:
1 ? 1024/0x59EF33BD RSA es Brian May <email@example.com>
2 ? 1024/0x59EF33BD RSA es Brian May <firstname.lastname@example.org>
3 ? 1024/0x70148CF9 RSA es Brian May <email@example.com>
Note: It key 1 and 2 are both the same key. It doesn't display the
2nd UID of this key, which is firstname.lastname@example.org, the desired one.
(Look up my key on the Developers key ring if you are not sure).
PGP would display this instead:
1 + 1024/0x59EF33BD RSA es Brian May <email@example.com>
2 + 1024/0x59EF33BD RSA es Brian May <firstname.lastname@example.org>
3 + 1024/0x70148CF9 RSA es Brian May <email@example.com>
If I try to encrypt the message without signing, it comes up with the
Enter keyID for firstname.lastname@example.org:
but won't accept anything I type - I have to sign the message
as well for it to work.
