[Bug 172336] Re: thunderbird enigmail does not work with passphrases

the fact that you have GPG_AGENT_INFO (sorry i ment this from the
beginning) is set means that you manually configured the use of a gpg
agent at some point.

I don't see the point of adding a dependency on something that you
should do when configuring your gpg to use an agent.

this all will change for gpg2 as there using an agent will be the
default. But until we are there, I don't think that we want this change
and force every enigmail user to install a gpg agent passphrase frontend
(even though most don't use it).

** Changed in: enigmail (Ubuntu)
       Status: Confirmed => Won't Fix
