Too many passphrase queries (web)

so I'm using the alpha version (I guess? Or should I uncheck "download beta versions"?) of GPGMail in Mac OS 10.7 and I keep Thunderbird with Enigmail around to be able to reply using per-recipient rules (encrypted google groups and so on).
In Apple Mail using GPGMail however, I get asked for my passphrase all the time. I guess this is due to spotlight wanting to read those emails, but it's not just once every time there is a new one. First, I resolved to leaving the query box on a desktop that I don't use.
Recently though, even after entering the passphrase, it keeps asking me again and again, as though I had just entered a wrong passphrase. I now disabled GPGMail, having to fire up Thunderbird every time I want to read an encrypted email.
Any ideas for help with this mess, or is that just what we have to deal because of Lion?

    Thank you for your feedback. Have you disabled the following option: " > Preferences > GPGMail > Create Liste Preview"? Alternatively you could save your password in the encrypted OS X keychain instead of providing it to key loggers ;)

    Please let us know if this worked for you.

    Best regards, Alex
