I'm using KMail 1.8 on SuSE 9.3 and there seems to have been a change in
behaviour over previous versions whereby I'm asked for my passphrase whenever
I try to read an encrypted mail, even if I just entered it a minute ago to
read another encrypted mail. IIRC it used to keep the passphrase in memory
for a while, which was obviously more convenient, but I've dug around the
preferences dialog and can't see where to set this, if indeed it is possible
and I'm not just dreaming.
