Problem with mail/mulberry

Recently I portupgraded mail/mulberry.  Afterwards, mulberry wouldn't 
start.  It generated an error complaining about a missing 
After deinstalling and reinstalling, mulberry launches and works as 
expected.  However, I now cannot sign messages.

I removed and re-imported my certs to make sure that wasn't the problem. 
This is the error I'm getting:

GPG Plugin Error: gpg: WARNING: using insecure
memory! gpg: please see
for more information gpg: skipped "pauls at":
secret key not available gpg: signing failed: secret key
not available

The strange thing is, I'm not using GPG.  I'm using S/MIME.  Looking at the 
security preferences, I can see that S/MIME is not loaded.  Checking in the 
plugins directory, the S/MIME plugin is there.  I did a complete deinstall 
and distclean and reinstalled, but the problem still exists.

I'm not sure if this is a port problem or a distro problem, so I'm mailing 
both the FreeBSD ports list and the mulberry discussion list.  (I'm also 
cc'ing the FBSD port maintainer.)
