Hi Alexander,

I've splitted out this subject, because it was only loosely connected
to your specific technical problem. The connection is that we in general lack 
funding to help fixing problems on Gpg4win right now.

well, yes and no.

You are right about that one single user cannot provide enough funds
that we can fund a solid stream of maintenance work.
However many users could.
We know that Gpg4win has many users,
but we have not yet found a way to get enough to pay.
If we had ten times the people contributing now,
we certainly could do siginificant work with it.

Any amount helps us to justify more hours we put in.
Usually we work on bursts, so I cannot give you a specific issue this would 

We are of course trying to get organisations which are bigger
to buy support or development services from our companies.
And we have applied for a grant funding in the US. See the details
on gpg4win-devel.

Yes, by request we offer direct bank transfer to Germany.
If the sum is significant, we can even write you an invoice,
if this is helpful. I'm sending you our bank account number by
personal email.
