Further the gpg-agent is responsible to compute the iteration count for
our KDF.  That takes at least 100ms and thus either a long running
process needs to do that or we would need to store it somewhere with all
the troubles to keep it in sync in case the GNUPGHOME is on shared drive
(usually not a good idea but sometimes required)
