OK. But I looks more like a problem with gpgme than gpg because the
verification with the console client works fine.

Afaik the newest version of gpg4win is 1.1.3 from
which contains gnupg 1.4.7 ... which is not what I want to use :-(

So I'll try again with version gpgme-1.1.7-svn1327.tar.bz2 and get back
to you. If the error persists.

I'm aware of that, but I didn't manage to get the dynamic linked version
to run on windows :-(
