PGP/GPG is so janky. Someone sent me an encrypted email with a certain configuration and it causes Sylpheed and Kleopatra to both hang if I click on it. Sigh.

@cancel I bet it was --throw_keyids. Was it --throw_keyids?

@eqe It was something like, the sender's public key for authentication was bundled in the message, and there was some kind of signing chain with it, and Sylpheed+Kleopatra tried to auto-import it and then prompt me to trust it (ugh) and then the UI screwed up because it behaves differently if there's a chain, or something, and Sylpheed was blocking Kleopatra or the GPG prompt dialog finishing, but I also couldn't activate any Kleopatra window
