Case insensitive algo compare in Kleopatras new key dialog
Testing, NormalPublic

Description

Kleopatra takes the default key algorithm from gpg's --default-new-key-algo option. The comparison seems to be case sensitive so that an all lowercase "brainpoolp256r1" is detected as ECC but the the curve is not selected. Thus one needs to make sure to use the correct name "brainpoolP256r1" (with an uppercase 'p'). This is a bit surprising.

Just to be correct: Kleopatra takes the default key algorithm from gpg's default_pubkey_algo pseudo option. (Technically, this pseudo option probably uses gpg's --default-new-key-algo option, but only if the latter is set.)
