Second unexplained pinentry when generating subkeys with GPGME

When generating a new GPG master key and some subkeys with GPGME I
noticed some odd behavior. I get a second passphrase pinentry when
generating the first subkey and I don't know why. I initially thought it
was for creating the automatic revocation certificate, as it doesn't
seem to happen if I suppress the creation of the automatic one by
generating my own directly. However, the revocation certificate exists
before these passphrase prompts.

Does any know what might be happening here?
