Package: nasty
Version: 0.6-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

right after start of the 'nasty' utility, a 'pinentry' window pops up,
and it keeps on popping up again and again
if your try to enter something into it or simply close it.

If you launch 'nasty' from text virtual terminal instead of X11 desktop,
it displays a text equivalent of passphrase input dialog box.

Disabling 'use-agent' in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf didn't help.

Unfortunately, it looks like this 'nasty' utility is currently unusable.
