[Enigmail] Enigmail - gpg-agent - TTL

using Linux Mint 17 / Thunderbird (24.4.0) / Enigmail 17.2 with gpg2...
Once deciphered, Enigmail (or gpg-agent) keeps the passphrase forever in
memory although I have a .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf containing:

max-cache-ttl 15
default-cache-ttl 15

I'm not sure that gpg-agent.conf is correctly read when Enigmail initiates
gpg-agent at the pop-up of the pinentry windows.

HUP , killall, ..etc does not help.

Should I try to configure gpg-agent manually with gpgconf ?

Any ideas ?
