And like, hey!, to the other guy who replied, no point is in a signature with more than 128 bits, either: SHA512 is incompatible with gpg 1.2.2: Computer's can't even count to 2^64 in less than 2^32 seconds.

On Windows you have to put gpg.conf somewhere in your homedir, it
depends on the Windows version where that exactly is. gpg --version
shows you which gpg.conf it is using.
