It looks like the file renaming bug on Windows XP (and 2000) is still
there. I have done some more testing, and with this version, it's not
possible to generate any new key. Gnupg tries to rename
c:/path/to/some/dir\secring.tmp to c:/path/to/some/dir\secring.gpg
but this fails ("permission denied"), and consequently the public key is
not saved at all.
