[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#741261: enigmail: fails to recognize private keys for different accounts, asks for all private keys passphrases

Package: enigmail
Version: 2:1.6-4
Severity: minor


i have 7-8 private keys in my gpg keyring,  3 of those just for email accounts.
when i decrypt with default key(set in gpg.conf) everything's allright. when i
try to decrypt another account, gpg-agent asks for all other private
keys/subkeys's passphrases, untill it reaches the particular one.. and not
asking for that particular one in the first place.. that's really annoying on
tb/enigmail since i get 8 pop-ups asking for different passphrases everytime...
i've set mail accounts to use specific key for those, and see no difference..
still asking passphrase for all of them...

i thought it was a problem with gpg-agent and maybe it is (?), but other apps
recognize correctly each key and ask only for that passphrase....

sorry for my english & thanks in advance,
