No, Daniel, because after the focus on the other window of a terminal,
pinentry is not accessible... and all is locked. But the terminal bar
of its menu is accessible but not the submenus. So no actions is

Oops, after a timeout of about one minute that I have not seen before,
pinentry quits, unlocks X and displays :
ERR 83886179 Operation cancelled <Pinentry>

So I think the cause is in the "modal" (I do not know the name of this
mode in gtk) aspect of the window of pinentry.
