Take a smart card where
PIN retry counter : 3 3 3
Try 3 times to sign a document with the key from the card. Give the wrong PIN every time.
You'll always get the error message wrong PIN in the results window:
This is inconsistent, as usually a separate window would pop up for pinentry errors.
It would be nice if you could try again to give the PIN for the same operation. As it is at the moment you have to initiate a new sign operation for the file, which is cumbersome.
This will then give you an pinentry with the additional info line "tries left: 2":
After the 3rd entry of the wrong PIN, this is exactly the same.
Here I would wish for not only the popup "wrong PIN" but additionally this popup should declare "PIN blocked".
At the moment I will get this information only after giving the password (wrong or right) a 4th time:
If you try "Change PIN" next, you will be asked for the PIN and 2x for the New PIN in altogether 3 pinentry windows before being informed that the PIN is blocked.
Here I would expect to get that information immediately when I click "Change PIN".
The same is true for trying to unblock the card with the PUK. Again I have to enter 3 PINs in 3 windows before being informed that the entry in the first window was wrong. Additionally, the text in window 1 is borked:
After giving the PUK wrong 3 times the last window will pop up immediately after clicking "unblock card", as reported in T6421
It would be nice if at least some of these workflows and information could be improved.
