Still happens in Tails 0.21.
No keypresses are registered by pinentry, not even ENTER.
Changing keyboard layout with setxkbmap does not solve it. Enabling/disabling the input method doesn't affect it. Unsetting GTK_IM_MODULE and XMODIFIER doesn't help either.
Workaround for gpg: gpg --no-use-agent

We'll likely have to switch to an entirely different input method for Wheezy, so I doubt it's worth working on this on our Squeeze branch. This would only delay our long awaited Wheezy release. So, I would suggest attacking this with #5487, and then we can see if this problem is automagically solved in Wheezy or not.
