Try (if possible) adding --no-auto-check-trustdb to the GPG2 invocation of
enigmail, and separately cron a 'gpg --check-trustdb' (with possibly some of
--batch or --no-tty etc. added). I'm not sure what an appropriate frequency for
the cron should be, but gpg will not check the trust db even when asked if it
doesn't think it necessary. (unless you add --yes).
