This is a reported bug in GnuPG which remains unfixed and relates to
the use of GnuPG on Win2k. I have also reported this problem and even
taken the time to capture and submit a TCP log trace to be told "No, I
don't carry a Windows box with me around ;-)" when asking about a
possible fix for it :-(.
