Pinentry sometimes mixes languages
Open, NormalPublic


I've noticed several times when testing that some strings in pinentry are english while others are in german on a completely german installation of Windows.

Strangely enough. This does not happen all the time. I can reproduce it pretty reliably by using a clean system. Do a fresh install and start to import S/MIME certificates.

The description comes from gpg/gpgsm while the prompts are from gpg-agent. Thus if the agent has been started with the German local but gpgsm without a local this would explain the behaviour.
