Package: enigmail
Version: 2:0.95.0+1-3
Severity: normal

Despite having "Remember passphrase for N minutes of idle time" set to any 
value (5, 10, 1000, anything), I'm still asked for my passphrase every time I 
need to use my private key. Kind of annoying.  Setting "Use gpg-agent for 
passphrases" doesn't help (or appear to change anything).
Attached are the enigmail relevant parts of my prefs.js file.
