Are the developers aware of a bug preventing use of recent gpg4win on a Chinese
Windows XP system? At a glance, it would appear to be something that ought to be
fixed. China isn't a tiny country either :).

I do appreciate that some bugs are too complicated to just go ahead and fix,
which is why I phrase it as I do.

The only relevant thing a quick Google turned up for me is a Kleopatra bug
report[1], where there even was very recent activity: a message dated 15 March:
