Nope. Not GnuPG, Gpg4win is the culprit. According to:, the Gpg4win components are:

    * GnuPG- the core
    * Kleopatra- Cert manager for OpenPGP asd x.509
    * GPA- Alt. cert manager
    * GpgOL- A plugin for MS Outlook 2003 and 2007
    * GpgEX- A plugin for MS Explorer 32bit
    * Claws Mail- An MTA
    * Gpg4win Compendium- Docs

So, it would appear to me that the culprit from what you have described is
the GpgOL plugin, and NOT GnuPG.
