pinentry-efl does not grab input when requesting pin for authentication
Open, NormalPublic

Description

pinentry-efl totally ignores grab/no-grab option
By grabbing I mean that it's not possible to input elsewhere. Same as ssh-askpass does.

This is known and by design, basically it is a legacy X feature. For Wayland, the window manager determines if a window should be blocking, no grab or grab, not anything applications themselves have control over. This came up many times when I was first making the interfaces. You can reference these two comments, but there are many more in between them.
