The "_OK" and "_Cancel" work fine in gcr under xfce4, as noted here:


("_Save" is still broken on xfce4's gcr prompter, though).  So I think
the issue is with gcr on gnome3, not with pinentry.

It looks to me like gcr_prompt_set_choice_label() doesn't support
prefixed-underscore accelerator keys the way
gcr_prompt_set_continue_label() and gcr_prompt_set_cancel_label() does
on xfce4's gcr.

Shall I open a bug in gcr about this?

The translations of those strings actually ship in gpg-agent's source
(gnupg2), which already has translations for most of the strings.  The
only new string in all of this is "Save in password manager", and gnupg
has plausible translations for de at least there.

(cs, da, jp, fr, nl, pl, ru, sv, uk, and zh_TW appear to have
fuzzy-mapped "Save in password manager" to the "Cancel" string, which is
probably a pretty bad outcome; i agree that part should be fixed)
