I'll make a very wild guess - I don't have real knowledge of this, but I
have a suspicion.
KDE does lots of things, and it has a kind of gnupg agent for use by
programs needing gpg. Probably, if there is a .gnupg directory this
program or whatever gets started and provides services. Then, it will be
this program which is interacting with yours strangely.
