^^ That is due to a glibc/gettext problem. Try to set LC_MESSAGES to your locale. The next gnupg version will handle it as usual.

Both are not handling the putput of GnuPG correctly. GnuPG's --with-colon output is the native encoding of OpenPGP which is UTF-8 (that is the reason for the 2 characters for the cedilla c in your name) GnuPG is correct according to OpenPGP, and many other programs are not. -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
