Charset iso-8859-1 in gpg.conf for  v1.4.11 SOLVED the prob :-))

@Michael: jetzt ist wirklich alles in Butter auch v1 im neuen script. Evtl.solltest Du einen entsprechenden Hinweis im script anbringen.
Auszug aus einer Muster-gpg.conf:
# If you do not use the Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) charset, you should tell
# GnuPG which is the native character set.  Please check the man page
# for supported character sets.  This character set is only used for
# metadata and not for the actual message which does not undergo any
# translation.  Note that future version of GnuPG will change to UTF-8
# as default character set.  In most cases this option is not required 
# GnuPG is able to figure out the correct charset and use that.
Charset utf-8 bringst nicht aber
Charset iso-8859-1 :-)))  und Reinhard ist happy :-)...... und Du sicher auch?
