Marc (Mutz) pointed out to me
that indeed you will get two password dialogs
because one for the signature key and one for the decryption key.
But, people reading the current kmail-pgpmime-howto
might think that the test fails when they run the line again
and get no password dialog at all,
because the passwords are cached.

Might have been clear from the context:
The user tried to encrypt messages to himself.
