Control: severity -1 serious
Control: tags -1 + patch


I have been bitten by this bug for multiple months without having a clue
of what was going on... when I resumed my laptop without wifi, the GNOME
session would be blocked for a minute or so.

With the patch in https://salsa.debian.org/debian/gnupg2/-/merge_requests/9
I no longer have this issue.

But I'm not sure if the patch is fully correct, the manual page is not
clear whether --check-options foo is a subset of --check-programs. However
the output format of both command is exactly the same.

BTW I believe this issue needs to be fixed in bullseye too.
