I've built 20c6a516ec (which contains ef2059e877), and now I'm getting
"Signature failed" whenever I'm trying to sign an email. Independent if
my passphrase was correct or not. As a matter of fact, it no longer
giving me the possibility to fill in my passphrase in the minibuffer.

So I'm getting a proper error now, but my original problem is not

TBH I'm getting a bit lost in the maze of bugs:

- #26298: (this one)
- #30363: epa-decrypt-file not using epa-pinentry-mode
- #23619: Some epg tests fail

Anyway, the patch provided in
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=23619#14 does solve my
problem. But as Noam mentioned, I am not sure "it's the right thing".
