I can't see for what this patch is good for:

-  if(strcmp(type,"ldaps")==0)
+  if(strcmp(type,"ldap")==0)
+    return "ldap";
+  else if(strcmp(type,"ldaps")==0)
     return "ldap";
     return type;

The check for "ldap" seems to be superflous as it is a NOP.

-	echo "../g10/gpg --no-options --no-greeting \
+	echo "../g10/gpg --no-options --no-greeting --homedir . \
              --no-secmem-warning --batch --dearmor" >>./gpg_dearmor
 	chmod 755 ./gpg_dearmor
+	if test ! -f ./pubring.gpg; then touch -t 197001020000 ./pubring.gpg; fi
+	if test ! -f ./secring.gpg; then touch -t 197001020000 ./secring.gpg; fi

Please explain.

I can't see any problem with gpg.ru.

BTW, it would make thing much easier if the pacthes are creasted with

Please send a more detailed bug report.
