Previously I was running brewed 2.0.26. And now I've experienced the
similar issue with a speedo build of 2.1.2. There's still definately
something going awry but I'll need to do some more testing to find out more.

I'm using the FSFE card and the issue is a hang when it should be asking
for PIN.

I kinda had that in mind :). QT 4 is going out of support very soon,
i.e. sometime this year. Surely someone from the KDE / larger community
using pinentry-qt4 has been working on a QT 5 version of pinentry?
