After upgrade of gpgme to 1.4.0-1, KMail is no longer able to validate x.509 signed mails (message vaiting for signature validation appears and no validation is done). When composing a signed message, after the private key password is provided a "busy mouse coursor" is displayed over the message window for infinite time, resulting in need of killing KMail as it does not respond.

Additional info:
kdepim-kmail 4.10.2-2
gpgme 1.4.0-1

When KMail is run from console, nothing related is printed after the problematic action. From what I understand of KWatchGnuPG the certificate validation happens and succeedes.

Steps to reproduce:
- in KMail open a x.509 signed message and see the "wait for signature validation message".
- try to compose a new x.509 signed message, when send is pressed, see the KMail stop responding and the message window not disapearing.
This task depends upon

Forgot to mention that downgrading gpgme to 1.3.2-1 solves the issue.
I'm including a log from KWatchGnuPG when opening a signed mail in KMail (12:33:35). The validation seems to succede, but there are plenty of other errors around spamming the log all the time (broken pipe and scd card error).

It has been already reported [1]. I should search better next time.

So it looks like we need another configure option at compile time?

gpgme configured with ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static --disable-fd-passing
indeed works
