I started from a brand new install, right down to emptying out my old 
%APPDATA%\Roaming\GnuPG directory.  I reloaded keys the "hard" way, by 
--import \path\to\old\pubring.gpg and --import \path\to\old\secring.gpg.

As near as I can tell I'm doing things correctly.  However, honesty 
compels me to say that I'm running into a *lot* of problems with the 
Windows build.  It does not appear to me to be ready for prime time.

Yes, which is why I reported it again: because I was under the 
impression that bug had been *fixed*.
