GPGME status callback not working for need entropy

I've been trying to use the GPGME status callback to get an indication
of when the system is low on entropy, but I don't seem to get a callback
when such an even occurs. I've enabled full status and I get Pinentry
Launched status messages, so it seems to sort of be working. When
generating a key without enough randomness, the whole application just
locks up with no indication of what is happening. Is there anything else
I could query to inform the user of what's occurring in this scenario?
