Excellent, thanks for your help in debugging this!  It's a bug in
enigmail 1.8.2, that some environment variables aren't being passed
through correctly to gpg (which passes them to gpg-agent, which passes
them to pinentry, whew!)

I think i've fixed it in debian's enigmail package 1.8.2-4, and
forwarded the fix upstream as well.

Could you try it out and let me know if it fixes things for you,
including over the restart that caused it to fail previously?  If it
doesn't fix the situation for you, let me know and we can re-open this

All the best,
