[Gpg4win-users-en] Keyring in public location

I just installed GPG4Win 2.0.1 and was shocked to find it compiled
with C:\Programs\GNU\GnuPG\pub as its HOME directory. This means
that the private key of the first user using GPG on a system will be
accessible by all other users.

Is this a known issue (I could not find anything in the issue
tracker), or a feature?
