Hangs on loading plugins:
Does NOT hang on loading plugins:
Load pgp plugins and enable pgp functionality.
Plugins pgpinline.dll, pgpmime.dll and pgpcore.dll do not provide version information in file properties window. But sizes (real size, not size on disk) and hashes for these files are as below:
Size: 21 504
Size: 20 992 bytes
Size: 53 760
Clawsmail is run from a batch file clawsmail.bat as follows:
After loading plugin pgpinline.dll, claws-mail hangs. Claws-mail does not crash, meaning abnormal exit, but just stops responding. However, you can still close claws-mail from small X button on top right corner of it's window. Waiting for 3 minutes and it is still not responding, so draw conclusion that it will be so forever. However, from directory "Application Data" we can find that gnupg directory was created, among with files pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, trustdb.gpg (size 40 bytes, binary), S.gpg-agent (size 21 bytes, binary), pubring,kbx, pubring.gpg.lock, pubring.kbx.lock, secring.gpg.lock, trustdb.gpg.lock and one directory private-keys-v1.d. All filesizes 0 bytes if not otherwise stated.
This bug does not exist on version downloaded from http://www.gpg4win.org/
Bug seems to pertain to version of GnuPG that is supplied with claws-mail installer package.
Version with this problem: gpg4win-light-2.1.0-svn1407-colin.exe
I propose updating GnuPG plugins for this package as the fix.
Marking WORKSFORME, reopen if not :)
