Still not here.. ;-)
I forced set crypt_use_gpgme=no in my muttrc and decrypt works, verified
that crypt-gpgme.c decrypt_part() is not called.

The gpg.rc pgp_decrypt_command I use is almost the same as distributed
with stretch, just the gpg command renamed to ggp2 (which I needed for
another machine) which nowadays is a symbolic link to /usr/bin/gpg


OpenPGP/GnuPG encrypted mail preferred in all private communication.
