Thanks Daniel for the detailed explanations.
I (apt) removed pinentry-gnome (and as you guessed, I already had
pinentry-qt installed), and now Enigmail cannot open any encrypted
emails, it displays the error message "GnuPG cannot query your
passphrase via pinentry."
I tried adding the option "pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-qt" to
.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf, which doesn't change anything. I then reinstalled
pinentry-gnome which does not restore previous behaviour.
I've no access to encrypted emails via Thunderbird for now. I will not
be able to do much because I'm on a very bad connection for the next few
