Oh, you're right

    emacs -Q --eval "(setq epa-loopback-mode 'loopback)" -l epa

Well, it's at least part of the problem.  Can you double check that
epa-loopback-mode has the right value?  When I apply Basil's patch, add
'allow-loopback-pinentry' to ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf and (setq
epa-loopback-mode 'loopback), then M-x epa-sign-file does give me a
prompt in the minibuffer, as expected.

Could you also double check that reverting 302e500087 fixes your
