I don't think any of this realpath nonsense is necessary at all.  Instead of
tacking '/..' to the end of current, just use a parameter expansion to strip
off '/*'.  Since you know that 'current' will always have "$PREFIX" as a
prefix, you're guaranteed to terminate.

	while true; do
		[[ "$(realpath -q "$current")" == "$(realpath -q "$PREFIX")" ]] && break
		[[ -f "$current/.gpg-id" ]] && break


	while [[ $current != "$PREFIX" ]]; do
		if [[ -f $current/.gpg-id ]]; then
