I am using gpg 1.0.7 as shipped with Cygwin and Mozilla and the Enigmail 
plugin under Win2K

gpg under Cygwin seems to expect ^D as eof and I believe that Enigmail 
is using ^Z which makes gpg wait and Enigmail fail.

Has anyone else had this problem?

There  may be a few solutions for this:

1) Re-configure Cygwin stdlib to accept ^Z as eof (this should be 
default behavior but it's not working
2) Recompile gpg under mingw (in theory should be as simple as using 
--mno-cygwin option)
3) Hack the gpg source code
4) Hack the Enigmail course code.

Does anyone have any insights?

Thanks, regards.
