This happens also if you have not a full GNOME installation, which is
the case for me.
The problems I see witch your patch is that the fallback to curses
1. could also triggered by other errors
2. that it may happen during a running pinentry session in case the
SystemPromper gets removed of installed during the session. That
would be pretty suprising.
I would prefer to return a better error message instead of the auto
fallback. The idea with the auto fallback is that it is used if a user
switches between a plain tty and an Xsession. But not to resolve
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
