Package: schroot Version: 1.6.10-2 Modern gnupg (gnupg2) has a gpg program which automatically starts a gpg-agent, which may then live on for some time.
If some program is run within an schroot which invokes gpg (for example, as part of a package build, or a DEP-8 test suite), schroot can fail to tear the chroot down. As an example, dgit's DEP-8 test suite currently fails for this reason when run with adt-virt-schroot specifying an lvm snapshot sid chroot. (See #840669 for more details.) I suggest that schroot ought to kill gpg-agents when tearing down the chroot. On my own computer I have done this with the attached script, which might serve as a starting point. I suspect that this script is not quite what is needed. Things which are perhaps wrong with it: * It always prints output (good for me to help debug this problem, but not good for a default shipped with schroot) * I am not sure whether the --exec test will DTRT. ISTM that it will almost certainly do a wrong thing for tarball chroots, but it's probably right for lvm snapshot ones (or any other that has its own separately mounted /usr filesystem). * Other things I haven't thought of. Thanks, Ian.
