Which is the expected behaviour on Unix like systems.  This is one of
the problems I expected to see when using different versions of GnuPG.

We will eventually make sure that GnuPG when build under Cygwin works
exactly like a Unix program.  After all, Cygwin is a System to emulate
Unix using the W32 API.

The native Windows build should work like a Windows binary; i.e using
Ctrl-Z to end input from the console.

Using the cross-compiled GnuPG (doc/README.W32) is actually the only
build we support under Windows.
