GNUPG 1.4.0 KEYRINGS RELATED BUG

Most of keyrings related operations (adding or importing a new key,
modifying prefs) fail on GNUpg v1.4.0 for Win32 compiled with Visual C++ 6.0
(running on Windows NT 4.0 Workstation) due to a denied permission when
renaming temporary keyring files.
In fact, I found that remove/DeleteFile function call fails, obviously
preventing subsequent file renaming. The problem is: why? Perhaps is there
an open HANDLE object somewhere (it seems that Win32 refuses to delete open
files, specially on NT)?
I have no time to investigate, so I hope you will.
Note that some operations fail with the downloaded (MinGW32 made) GPG
However, old versions I compiled myself with Visual C++ worked fine!
