If I understand correctly then the problem is that the `gpg` command 
doesn't trigger the passphrase requester again?

Note that the passphrase requester is not really part of MailMate. It is 
triggered by gpg itself. You can get debug output like this in a 
Terminal window:

	defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDebugSecurity -bool YES

Then launch MailMate like this:


You should then be able to reproduce the issue using the `gpg` command 
directly in the Terminal window and maybe that'll lead to a solution. If 
there is some kind of argument I should provide to the `gpg` command to 
avoid this issue then let me know.
