Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: enigmail

I installed intrepid from scratch on a different partition and copied
the .gnupg folder into the new user for intrepid. When I use enigmail
(within thunderbird) in intrepid, I get the following error message


OpenPGP Security Info

Error - secret key needed to decrypt message

gpg command line and output:
/usr/bin/gpg --charset utf8  --batch --no-tty --status-fd 2 -d --use-agent 
gpg: NOTE: old default options file `/home/raj-intrepid/.gnupg/options' ignored
gpg: problem with the agent - disabling agent use

gpg: public key decryption failed: bad passphrase
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available

(e-mail addresses and key IDs are redacted)

I do enter the correct passphrase. I have tried the same in hardy and
everything works still fine.

The difference to Bug #268951 is that I get a window to enter the
passphrase and I am able to enter the correct one. Still I get the same
result.
