gpg-agent and X

I have an update for this issue.

It seems that I have the problem all time I use the QT pinentry. The
gtk2 pinentry seems to be fine and with the switch to QT one, the
problem appears. Now I have the problem on debian and gentoo.

Even more, a `gpg-connect-agent updatestartuptty /bye` over ssh
connection does not work with pinentry-qt.

Unfortunately, the gtk3 version of pinentry has some toxic dependencies
that I never want to have.
