Two observations on Tramp. I need help in getting around.

* Observation one

In a fresh instance of Emacs (27.0.60), if I try to open a remote ssh
file, Tramp tries to load ~/.authinfo.gpg and asks for passphrase. This
is okay. But the problem is this - as I start typing "/ssh:.." the
passphrase prompt also come at the same input area. And when I start
typing passphrase characters it starts switching back and forth between
"Find file:" and "Passphrase:" prompts. I have (setq epg-pinentry-mode
'loopback) in my config.

As a workaround, I cancel the operation. And then I start Gnus (or some
other package that can load ~/.authinfo.gpg). Enter passphrase. And then
open the desired remote file.

Is there a proper way to handle this?

* Second observation

When I open a remote ssh file and connect to the server for the first
time, Tramp offers to save the password in ~/.authinfo even if the file
~/.authinfo.gpg exists and is already loaded (by some other package like

How can I tell Tramp to save passwords in ~/.authinfo.gpg?
