Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdepim

I can crypt (and decrypt) messages i send to myself for test, but it is impossible to just sign them

kmail tell me there is no valid key for signing!

After fixing ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf (remove wrong stuff in it introduce by some program)
and following and adding the pinetry-qt4 package, it works. suggest this is a distro bug, which seems probale in my installation (xubuntu jaunty upgraded to karmic, with kde stuff)
