It should actually not be in the home directory but under
to avoid problems with  remote file systems.  ~/.gnupg is just a
fallback in case /var/run/user/<UID>/ does not exist.

If the homedirectory is changed (vis GNUPGHOME or --homedir) a specially
named subdirectory below the /var/run/ directory is used.
  gpgconf --list-dirs
shows things.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
