Works now with gpgme 1.0.3.

One problem remains: If I forget to insert the card before sending the
mail, the UI hangs. Should I blame gpgme for that or the mail client
(Sylpheed)? If latter, can you shortly describe how to fix it so that I
can forward this to the GPG plugin maintainer of Sylpheed Claws? Thanks!
