well, this takes me to a difficult question:
How much more are to come? (Have you begun a code audit? How long will it take 
I haven't been following the gnupg development so far, but imho the recent 
development of actions rater is rather disturbing - and these kind of bugs 
tend to disqualify gnupg from mission critical use. 
Please don't get me wrong, I really like gnupg and  appreciate what you've 
done so far, but the recent development worries me.

Keep smiling
