What exactly do you mean by redirected folders? Is it a junction that points 
to a different location (is this location a network share?). Or do you somehow 
change through settings where the home directories of the users are?

I'm very interested in this as I would like to try to reproduce that setup.

Interesting, this means that the communication with Kleopatra does not work. 
We have it on our todo to change GpgOL so that it no longer requires Kleopatra 
but thats a bit of a larger issue. ( https://dev.gnupg.org/T3509 )

There might be something in the GpgOL log but it would most likely tell you 
"Waiting for the UIServer to start" several times until it hits a timeout.

It is interesting at the very least. We might have an issue here. GpgOL uses a 
"Named Pipe" which is a file / socket thingy that lives in the users home 
directory. There may be problems if that directory lives on a Network share / 
is redirected somehow.
