Description W. Elschner 2009-06-18 20:37:13 UTC
On my ~amd64-system pinentry (compiled with USE flags gtk, ncurses, qt3) encodes "%"-character to "%25". This is really bad when a passphrase contains a "%"-character because gpg or openpgp (which use pinentry) get the wrong passphrase.

This happens when I just type "%" after "getpin":

$ pinentry
OK Your orders please
getpin
D %25
OK

The problem seems to be "%25" while gpg / openpgp expect "%". Same with pinentry-curses and pinentry-qt.Other special characters like !"ยง$&/()= are not encoded.

Comment 2 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2009-07-04 17:32:44 UTC
That pinentry encodes % is required by the assuan protocol and its up to the application to decode the string. I just tried gpg and it works correct.
