This is not strange at all as you encounter the same behaviour with more or 
less all programs (i.e. this problem is not related to GnuPG at all). Usually 
a program requires so see --arg1 and --arg2 as seperate options. "" makes the 
shell pass both as one string. That usually doesn't make sense to the program 
(and even worse: if it does then it's most probably not the intended sense).
