On varies Unix varieties (including Linux) it is possible to lock
memory so that it is never swapped out to disk. gnupg terms this
Under Windows it is not possible to do this.
If you are seeing this warning under an OS that does support it, it may
be that you need to make the gnupg binary setuid root, since locking
memory in this way is something that only root can do.
