BUG: gpg 1.4.9 --search-keys --with-colons writes strange line endings (at least on Windows)

GPG 1.4.9 --search-keys --with-colons on Windows writes CR CR LF at the 
end of each line on STDOUT. This causes weird things to happen with most 
text readers: like a CR character at the end of each line, an LF 
character at the beginning of each line, and/or blank lines after each line.

These extra characters and/or blank lines mess up code to parse the 
--search-keys output.
