What you describe sounds more like the Gnome Keyring rather than any
GPG-based program.

They keyring is what stores your passwords etc, it is used for WEP/WPA
keys along with any other password in the system.

I'm guessing that you have passwords in Evolution to your email
accounts etc, and these are protected by the Gnome Keyring
application. Evolution has to request access in someway to be able to
download your email.

This is a guess, hope it points you in the right direction.
