Damn. But all is likely not lost.

If you can open Enigmail Preferences, go to the Keyserver tab, and
specify only as the keyserver. That way, if you manage
to fix gpg, Enigmail won't break it again. Also see "100% CPU usage
endles loop of gpg --list-keys" <> for

About hardening and fixing gpg, see
<> at
Mitigations and Repairs. Also see

You'll very likely need to use gpg in terminal. I suspect that GPA may
be just as wedged as Enigmail.

Maybe someone could post a step-by-step guide for fixing gpg. For people
who don't commonly use it in terminal. I suppose that I could import one
of the poisoned keys in a fresh VM, and explore how to fix it. But I'm
sure that someone reading this could just dash it out.
