That output goes directly to the tty.  Without a pinentry you will need
to enter the passphrase also directly via the tyy (because we need
direct control to avoid echoing of the passphrase.  It seems that this
is a left-over which should not be displayed (or to stderr) iff the
pinentry is used.

Use --batch or --no-tty to suppress this output
