It turned out that the user did not have a gpg-agent running.  Once he started it, he was asked whether he wants to trust the cert, and the verification process works as expected.

Would be great if gpgme could provide a little more information about such situations (although I would fully agree if you said that there is no good reason why a session manager should *not* start the agent...).

Thanks for your help,
