Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your reply.

I have checked my Thunderbird version and I have the latest available
one on my platform:

"apt-cache policy thunderbird
  Installed: 1:45.8.0-3~deb8u1
  Candidate: 1:45.8.0-3~deb8u1"

(also according to https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/icedove)

I have checked bug


but I do not think that we have the same issue:

I didn't have to restart gpg-agent when installing the version I have
compiled of enigmail...

(and I don't use gnome, nor its keyring, at least not that I am, nor ps
aux | grep's aware of)

So I still think that this bug should be reopened for the specific
architecture that I am using.

(in clear, that Bug #869774 should be reopened for PPC)
