            Bug ID: 3264
           Summary: Claws Mail silently fails to encrypt after prompting
                    for passphrase
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/Privacy
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: track-clawsbugs at brainonfire.net

0. Claws 3.8.1 with PGP/Core, PGP/inline, PGP/MIME, and S/MIME plugins of same
1. Create message, select PGP inline, Sign, Encrypt
2. Send/Send Later
3. Prompted for passphrase
4. Message sends (or goes to outbox)
5. Message has been signed, but not encrypted

I have marked this as a major bug because this is a silent failure; perhaps it
should even be marked critical. I'm just glad I wasn't sending anything
important when this happened to me!

Environment notes:

- I have used this feature in the past. However, that may have been before I
switched from Ubuntu to Debian, so some config settings may have been lost, or
program versions changed.
- I use Debian Stable, hence the slightly older version. I am willing to try
other versions of Claws for bug-diagnostic purposes *if* they will not make
non-backwards-compatible changes to my mail, servers, or settings.
- The only relevant console output is "WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't
connect to: /home/timmc/.cache/keyring-ABCDEF/pkcs11: No such file or
directory", but I'll note that signing does still work.
