If you want to add a pgp-key with seahorse, the dialog window is not drawn or it is drawn behind the main window.
The console doesn't show any errors. But the journal.
If you press ESC you get back the control over the main window.
If you enter a name then press TAB and enter a email-address and then press ENTER a key is generated.

Additional info:
* seahorse 3.12.2

Steps to reproduce:
1. Click on + or over the menu file->new
2. Select PGP-Key
3. No menu appears
4. Press ESC
5. Close seahorse
This task depends upon

It seems that the complete dialog for managing and editing PGP-keys is broken. When I try to edit a key it says "allgemeinr Fehler" and brings back to the dialog of the key I was editing.

Problem still exists with Version seahorse 3.12.2-1.

With seahorse 3.14.0-1 the Problem seems fixed.
Although I don't know if the expected behaviour is that after entering all data the window disappears and no progress bar or dialog is shown while creating the key.
After a time the key appears in the overview of GnuPGP keys in seahorse.

It probably should, but that's likely an upstream problem.

If key generation is taking too long, try installing and starting haveged.
