addendum: editing my gpg.conf to comment out the version-2-only options
appears to make deja-dup run correctly. this seems to be at least a
workaround, if not the complete solution.

it's regrettable that gnupg versions 1 and 2 use the same config file,
with options not being backwards compatible. i doubt i'll be the only
one to trip myself up by too enthusiastically using the shiny new
features of version 2 while some code on my system still needs version

  Deja-dup fails to create encrypted backup

Status in deja-dup package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Attempting to create a full backup to a SMB NAS, succeeds if backup is
  set to unencrypted. Fails if password is specified.

  Symptom: deja-dup loops endlessly through "scanning" -> "encryption
  password needed" -> "require password?" and round and round.

  Possibly related to recent gnupg options changes? Creating a GPG key
  pair for enigmail to use was the last major change i made to my set-up
  since the last time these back-ups succeeded. If that's the cause,
  i'll be darned if i can work out what to revert where.
