The difference is that I don't see any leaks, thus I do not need to
help others reproducing a bug.

The main problem I had with Vladimirs code snippet was that it did not
show the passphrase callback (which may do allocation), and that it
contained an obviously broken line:

>   gpgme_op_sign gpgme_data_out, GPGME_SIG_MODE_CLEAR);

which raises doubts if I could faithfully reproduce his test case.  In
fact, because I did not see any memory leak, I am sure I could not
reproduce his test case.

If your mail was sarcasm, I didn't get it.  I lost my funny hat ;)
