right after doing crypto operations, it may have a cached password
via the gpg-agent component.

Okay, if you were not asked for the password after a reboot,
something else must have happened. Please use a testeditor
application to look into the .gpg file to see if it actually
is still encrypted. 

Two other things you could check:
* After decrypting, the file might have been replaced with the
  cleartext file. Make sure you did not mix it up.
* Check that you did not just sign. :)
