Sorry, I meant that using pinentry-curses as the gpg-agent pinentry  
program does not cache the passphrase, while using pinentry-gtk does.

With pinentry-curses, the second time gpg needs my passphrase, I get:
gpg-agent[11424]: command get_passphrase failed: Operation cancelled
gpg-agent[11424]: DBG: map_to_assuan_status called with no error source

I tried without and with 'default-cache-ttl 600' in my .gpg-agent.conf.

pinentry-gtk, on the contrary, ask me the passphrase the first time,  
and remember it then.
