I was wrong.  You won't get ask when doing a --with-validation. In
fact that would be a bad idea because it is used wth a list command
and thus you might get ask for many certificates.  I recall that this
was an annoying mproblem when I implemented --with-validation.

Either do an encryption ro signing.  I just tested it using encryption
of a end certificate and it works as expected.

Note that when manually changing trustlist.txt or gpg-agent.conf, you
need to give gpg-agent a HUP.
