New submission from Bernhard Herzog <bh at intevation.de>:

When exporting secret keys with kleopatra, non-ascii characters in the text
displayed by pinentry is handled incorrectly.  When exporting a secret key, a
pinentry window comes up two times, once to unlock the secret key, and once to
protect the pkcs12.

When using pinentry-gtk, non-ascii characters are shown incorrectly in the first
message, but correctly in the second.  When using pinetry-qt it's the other way

my guess is that the lc-ctype is not communicated to the pinentry, and that the
second message is in the locale's ctype and not in utf8.

This looks mostly like a backend bug to me.
