It's a Win32 command line executable, which works well in Windows 2000
(and also in Windows XP Pro, BTW).

Not sure which ones you mean. There are some flaws in GnuPG 1.06, but
there are no serious bugs in it. If there were any, there would already
have been an update, believe me.

Yes, using it here for about half a year now. And I can really recommend
it. I'd also recommend a frontend like WinPT, it makes life a little
easier if you are not accustomed to a command line (or a bit lazy
somtimes, like myself, without autocomplete in the shell :-( ).
