Right. GnuPG-2 require the gpg-agent and the gpg-agent is soley
responsible for asking for the passphrase. Check out the mail archives
on how to work around this (pinentry wrapper).
But: On common request GnuPG 2.1 (currently in beta) has a feature to
allow gpg-agent to call back to gpg (and in turn to gpgme etc) for the
passphrase (see --allow-looopback-pinentry and pinentry-mode). GPGME
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
