Hello Johan,

i checked that. chars are typing correctly. i keep all passwords in a password database. i copied/pasted & typed what i thought should be the correct passphrase. gpg2 returns "invalid". 

keyboard is a new microsoft sidewinder x4 but chars/keys are mapping fine with it.

appreciate your help and insight
