ah, I've found https://bugs.gnupg.org/gnupg/issue2293
Thanks for creating it. The next steps with such a problem report is
to improve it (if possible) e.g. by somebody else reproducting it
or making it easier to reproduce or to reduce the test case.

That is helpful, because development right now is concentrating more
on Gpg4win 3 with the new GnuPG 2.1 (to become 2.2) and this is where
gpg-agent and pinentry is handled slightly differently. So making sure that
it works with the new version is better for the future.

It comes with GnuPG 2.1 which will use a new format to save some certs.
Thus is migrates your old format, but keeps the old files.
(As you have a backup, because this is a test setting, this should not be a 
problem anyway.) GnuPG 2.1 will use the new format from then one,
so if you import a certs it will only be in the new file. You can go back
to the old file but you will miss the changes to the certring that you have 
been making after the "migration".  So far I have not heard about
any corruptions, but then again it is testing software, so bad stuff could 
happen in principle and you have a backup for the rare case, haven't you? ;)
