I finally gave it a try and it still fails.

I first thought that the issue may had been related to my .emacs
config but starting emacs with '-Q --no-desktop' still has the
problem.

I also tried with emacs with and without X support but both have the
issue.

When trying to open the encrypted document, I have the following
message in my mini buffer:

/home/fmoreau/Documents: 0% (0/787)

and it seems that it's waiting to me for entering my passphrase.

And in the terminal where I started emacs, I have this message that
appears:

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+| You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user: ...

but I cannot enter anything since the prompt looks broken.

Also I noticed that theres is the pinentry-ncurses running.

So the question is why does emacs uses pinentry-ncurses at all ? why
doesn't it use the mini buffer for entering my passphrase ?

Thanks
