Just FYI in case someone else falls into the problem, its not in
Thunderbird or Enigmail, its was due to a bug in Seahorse:
I fixed my problem by looking at the default setup of another system and
noting that it did not have:
I renamed that file, restarted X, and all is well. Seahorse is running
by itself rather than under gpg-agent:
/usr/bin/seahorse-agent --execute x-session-manager
I'm not sure where the file came from or why it was there. If someone
knows, please leave a message.
