This sounds like your passphrase callback returns invalid data. I would have 
to look how the PassphraseResult is mapped in the C# bindings but from the C 

The user must write the passphrase, followed by a newline character,
to the file descriptor @var{fd}.  The function @code{gpgme_io_writen}
should be used for the write operation.  Note that if the user returns
0 to indicate success, the user must at least write a newline
character before returning from the callback.

I do not think that you need to post your full code, but I would be interested 
in seeing your Passphrase callback.
