this suggests that you think the secret keyring was not migrated
properly during the 2.0 to 2.1 transition.  If this is the case, it will
be a problem without enigmail in the loop at all (just with gpg2 on the
command line).

Are you using your key on a smartcard?  if so, maybe you ran into the
same issue as #795881 ?

The fact that your problem sounds like it's still unresolved (from your
subsequent message) sounds like this isn't the core of it still.

I'm still unable to reproduce the problem you and the original reporter
are describing :/ Any help in reproducing it would be welcome.

Enigmail shouldn't need to be aware of the change, the secret key
migration should happen automatically.
