Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: enigmail

After installing EnigMail plugin on my Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 AMD64 system, I
went to add a Key (Thunderbird, OpenPGP -> Key Management).  I then was
shown an error message saying that it was unable to locate GnuPGP.

I then went in to Preferences (OpenPGP -> Preferences) and saw that the "Override" in "Files and Directories" was checked:
  [x} Override with 
   and the value in the field was:
     C:\Program Files\ ... [something or other, sorry, I didn't record it]

I unchecked the checkbox, and subsequent attempts to add a Key (OpenPGP
-> Key Management) were successul.

Expected behavior:
  The Override with should be unchecked, and the default gnuPGP should be used.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Enigmail hoping to recreate this issue but
the Override was not checked the second time.
