Thanks Robert. One more thing, I want to revoke one my keys which has 
very long password, but the thing is that I cannot do that as ncurses 
does not accept long passwords. Is it somehow possible to bypass ncurses 
dialog window? If not, maybe you remember from which version gpg started 
to use curses windows as I remember several years ago it was not used.
