I hate to resuscitate a thread this old but ... same here, Claws 3.9.3
on Debian Linux.
Paul, your remark about pinentry sounds off-key. I don't think apps are
expected to call pinentry directly - this is what the GPG agent is for,
isn't it? Does Claws (or rather the GPG plugin) currently use the
agent? If not, would a patch implementing that functionality be welcome?
