[pkg-gnupg-maint] Bug#801247: pinentry-gnome3: No PIN dialog

Package: pinentry-gnome3
Version: 0.9.6-2
Severity: normal


I'm using a Yubikey Neo to hold my ssh key. When
/etc/alternatives/pinentry points to pinentry-gnome3 (the default), then
I get no PIN dialog, and ssh fails. If I use update-alternatives to make
/etc/alternatives/pinentry to point to pinentry-gtk-2, and call ssh,
then the PIN dialog shows up as expected, and everything works fine. I'm
using Cinnamon, not Gnome, if that counts.
