It seems that some characters are encoded (like % is encoded as %25). 
8-bit characters are UTF-8 encoded. Entering a passphrase which 
contains German umlauts fails with pinentry-qt.

I have the following problem with pinentry 0.6.9-133 under SuSE
 Professional 9.0, installation from scratch:
When I want to sign an email (for example) I always get the error
 message, that the passphrase is wrong. As I'am absolutley sure that
 the entered phrase is correct I checked what pinentry gives back by
 using "pinentry-qt" and "getpin". Some key combinations (like shift-3
 or shift-5) produce wrong results (like %25 for shift-5). I guess
 that's te reason why the passphrase dialogue fails. Other key
 combinations (like shift-2) gives back the correct charcter.
Any ideas?
