Well, in the first place I used ldif-files and ldapadd(OpenLDAP) to store
the info in the OpenLDAP-Server.
Then I sniffed network traffic with different clients and different servers.
With this info I found out that the Keys coming from
ldap://keyserver.pgp.com don't have CRLF but LF to separate the lines and it
The keys coming from my OpenLDAP had CRLFs and WinGnuPG complained but Linux
Then I used ldp.exe from the Windows Support Tools to browse and edit the
LDAP entries. I copied and pasted the key from the server to a file and got
rid of the CRs. Then uploaded it again with ldp.exe and then it worked.
Btw importing the file with the key I copied/pasted from ldap was no problem
