I'm not convinced this response makes much sense.  Why *wouldn't* the
system's service manager (systemd, in your case) be unaware of webmailer

What is your webmail configuration doing that it is switching to a new
user session, but deliberately avoiding registering that user session
with the local system service manager?

Fixing this problem at the GnuPG layer seems like an odd approach.
