Sylpheed is not the only application affected. Mcabber
( also uses GPGME for GnuPG integration and
also fails after 2.0 -> 2.1 GnuPG migration.

Right now I have some troubles with building claws-mail with GnuPG
support. Will report when I'll be able to test it.

No, only with pubring.gpg.
  kbxutil --find-dups ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx
Shows none and --stat shows that only X.509 certs are stored in the
pubring.kbx file, no OpenPGP keys here:
openpgp:   0
x509:     63

No, for pubring.gpg only.

Thanks, this helped. I removed pubring.gpg instead of pubring.kbx,
though. Now I have only pubring.kbx with no duplicates.
