Hi Bernhard,

I tried CTRL+D before but it didn't work.
After your e-mail I tried again and pressed CTRL+D TWICE and that 'worked':

I called gpg -r "NAME", typed a message, hit CTRL+D twice. However it 
"Keine gültigen OpenPGP-Daten gefunden.
gpg: processing message failed: Unbekannter Systemfehler"
