Package: gnupg
Version: 1.4.11-3
Severity: normal

I did a Ctrl-C to interrupt gpg (started by Mutt to check a signature),
but it froze with a zombie child:

vlefevre 16559 16558  0 14:54 pts/9    00:00:00 gpg --no-verbose --batch -o - --verify /var/tmp/mutt-ypig-1000-11493-12902468631243413961.asc /var/tmp/mutt-ypig-1000-11493-12902468631243413961
vlefevre 16560 16559  0 14:54 pts/9    00:00:00 [gpgkeys_hkp] <defunct>

It is frozen in a futex call, according to strace:

futex(0x7f9734509e40, FUTEX_WAIT, 2, NULL
