Package: enigmail
Version: 2:1.8.2-4~deb8u1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

Detailed description:
* When clicking on encrypted mails, thunderbird says "This is an encrypted 
OpenPGP message. In order to decrypt this mail, you need to install an OpenPGP 
add-on" although enigmail is installed and shows up in the menu and in addons
* Similiarly, the enigmail encryption symbol is shown (greyd-out) but no longer 
works when writing mails
* Enigmail settings can no longer be accessed via the menu only via addons 
(clicking on menu and hovering over enigmail no longer shows a submenu, 
clicking on enigmail -> preferences in the menu bar 
* Clicking on Enigmail buttons is no longer processed (yields no results)
* In Preferences -> Basic settings, the message beneath "Files and
Directories" is "(error)". Since clicking on enigmail buttons is no longer 
processed, it is impossible to activate "Override with" to /usr/bin/gpg2 ("Ok" 
button does not work, "Browse" button does not work, "Display Expert Settings 
and Menus" does not work)

Further info:
* gpg and gpg2 exist (both in /usr/bin/) and both work flawlessly on the 
command line
* all current upgrades have been installed
* I have been informed that the same error also occurs on at least one other
system of a colleague with a debian standard install
