(see #3 for the version discrepancy)

After resuming from standby, while Thunderbird was running:

  1. a message pops up saying «pEp Adapter Not Running»
  2. a modal dialog is shown repeatedly «Passphrase Required»

I assume (without verifying) that this is a key passphrase that the adapter server is prompting to me via the client (Thunderbird).

This granted, I think there are various issues that mix together:

  1. a decision to interrupt me for a temporary connection problem that I can't do anything against. The pEp client should rather retry indefinitely;

  2. a confused agent, as it gets prompted for a passphrase by a client program instead of a fenced system service, and, moreover, unexpectendly "out of the blue"'

  3. and, a semantic discrepancy: I have multiple keys and all my keys have different passphrases, so I don't even know which of "the" passphrase is requested here.
