I just tried that to see if it would help. It doesn't make any
difference because the passphrase is already in the cache (ok, if the
password isn't in the cache then it does stop that first request). In
the example I gave it's the same payload being decrypted each time so
there is only one passphrase.

The subsequent unwanted prompts happen even when the passprase is
already cached. It's like some concurrent calls don't hit the cache.
