Yes, I do too, but my versions of enigmail (0.96.0) and gpg (2.0.11) are a tiny
bit newer than yours. I hope such small changes are not the cause of my problem.

I tried a different linux distribution (ubuntu versus gentoo) and I find exactly
the same problem on both.

Hm. Are you hinting that you'll be getting an Oracle email address?  I'm hoping
it's a change in name only, and not in quality.  We open source groupies owe a
lot to Sun.  Not so sure yet about Oracle...
