Uh, no. It's not the pthread hang, pthread is linked _before_ gpgme, as 
I stated previously. I double and triple checked this, so one can 
safely rule it out. Besides, if I fetch this particular key from the 
command line, it works instantaneously:

nuno@hobbes:~$ gpg --keyserver --search-keys 0x1791665F
gpg: searching for "0x1791665F" from HKP server
Keys 1-1 of 1 for "0x1791665F"
(1)     Stephen P. Berry <>
           1024 bit DSA key 1791665F, created 2000-01-09
Enter number(s), N)ext, or Q)uit > q

That 'SIGPIPE' in the backtrace doesnt look good. The fishy part is 
that it only hangs with this particular email, but works flawlessly 
with a good dozen others. Also, there are no 'gpg' processes running 
after balsa is hung, so killall or pkill would not matter.
