GPGServices: Encrypt and Sign appears to succeded with wrong PIN
It is possible for an "encrypt and sign" operation to fail without the user being notified, producing an encrypted but unsigned file. I can reproduce this by providing the wrong PIN to a smart card, it probably also applies to signing keys with passphrase.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Select a file to encrypt using the Finder services menu
2. Sign and encrypt the file to yourself
3. Enter the wrong PIN for the signing key
There is a dialog saying that the encryption was successful.
An encrypted but unsigned file is created.
There is a dialog saying that the signing failed.
There is no dialog indicating any kind of success.
There is no file created.
