is this better with the full Gpg4win (that possibly uses pinentry-qt4)?

Some developers pounder to remove the light variant because the necessary 
efforts to maintain it.

Best would be to add this info from your email to the wald report.

Then we could try to qualify the report further, e.g. by
a) trying to create an easier reproduction, like a calling pinentry directly
  pasting in some characters and then have the crash. 

call pinentry directly and get it to crash
   SETDESC hi use utf-8 encoding like %25

b) trying to get a debugger backtrace of the crash

If you like to join the development list, this is where we can help people 
better when stuff gets more technical. :)
