gpgme-android dies when it needs pinentry

So thanks to Abel's hard work, we have a working pinentry for Android.  But
now it seems that gpgme has its own issues when it comes to processes that
require pinentry.  We have gpgme working for things that don't require
pinentry: import, export, encrypting, listing keys, getting keys by
fingerprint, etc.

But for things like creating a new key, decrypting, signing, etc. gpgme always
crashes.  It does not seem to even try to launch pinentry, because we're not
seeing and logging from pinentry. Attached in the gpgme log for trying to
create a key.

I'm stumped, any ideas?
