Thanks for the test case. I can duplicate a (the?) bug as
follows. Replying to that message from notmuch-show mode works, but
replying from notmuch-search mode yields

Followed by the ciphertext.

If anyone wants to play with this, you just need to import the notmuch
test key into your keyring, something like

gpg --import path/to/notmuch-source/test/gnupg-secret-key.asc

What's odd is that the notmuch command in the error message works on the
command line.
