You may now comment on other peoples report and thus also on 2229.

>From looking at the strace in msg7794 it seems that the clientdied after
having seen the first PROGRESS line.  The client in this case is
gpg-preset-passphrase which is an old hack and not a proper Assuan
client. It received the 'S PROGRESS' line but does not expect it and
returns an error.

We should re-implement that tool in terms of gpg-connect-agent and for
the test scripts use gpg-connect-agent directly.  Justus is currently
reworking the test suite anyway.
