[Gpg4win-users-en] Crashes in gpg4win 3.0.3

Sorry for the late reply. I mostly use Linux and haven't used Windows since
my last email. But I decided to test gpg4win a bit more during this weekend.

The problem is reproducible and doesn't appear to have anything to do with
dirmngr or gpgex. It seems to happen every time when clicking on the ok
button in kleopatra. So a bug related to the gui and/or programming of what
should happen when clicking the ok button.

Also as I said in a previous email kleopatra sometimes gets 2 ok buttons
and no cancel button. This seems to happen when importing a new public key.

If no one else is experiencing these problems it might be because I have Qt
and Qt creator installed on that machine. Unfortunately I have no other
windows machine, so I can't test it on a machine without Qt and Qt creator
installed. But regardless gpg4win should use it's own qt files and not the
ones installed previously on a computer, so even if the bug is related to
that it needs to get fixed.

I see no point in uploading the dirmngr logs as it seems to be unrelated to
dirmngr. But if you want I can create a bug report for the crashes in
kleopatra and dual ok buttons.
