    Windows outputs the timezone name in the current locale charset, as
set by setlocale(). GnuPG doesn't call setlocale() on Win32. The default
locale on German Windows is "German_Germany.1252", with a CP-1252
charset. CP-1252 output on CP-850 terminal gives the wrong õ tilde.

    A call to setlocale(LC_ALL, ".850") gives correct ä umlaut.

    Beware it also localizes "03/11/05 14:04:48" according to regional
options of the control panel: "11.03.2005 14:04:48".

Bye!	Alain.
