It shouldn't make any difference. It seems to me that calling pinentry is
the first stage of the actual send. Once it gets to that stage things
happen quickly. I've sent just one since the 14-second one, and that took
8 seconds. We'll see how long this one takes. I've turned off signing, so
that it keeps everything as simple as possible.
From my understanding, pinentry is used for dealing with gpg keys. Like you
indicate, once you get past pinentry opening then everything seems to be OK.
So, it would seem that everytime you try to create a new email, you are
running a new instance of pinentry and that what seems to be taking up the
time. At least from the description of whats going on so far.
