It is called --no-grab.

I am not sure what he means.  However, recent GnuPG's and pinentries
have a cancel-all feature: Either the pinentry features an appropriate
button or you use the close-window button of the pinentry which also
sends the cancel-all message.

This is useful if gpg starts looking for --throw-keyid keys and you know
that you don't have the key.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
