[Gpg4win-users-en] Crashes in gpg4win 3.0.3

Today I decided to poke around a little and try to find out more.
Visual Studio 2017 was able to tell me that kleopatra.exe through
qt5Core.dll causes an access violation when trying to access location
0x00000000. Someone must have made a programming error, perhaps with a
pointer pointing to null.
This in turn sometimes also crashes dirmngr or gpgex depending on what I'm
When gpgex crashes it also crashes explorer so explorer needs to restart.
(When I try to verify a signature explorer loads gpgex, which loads
kleopatra, which crashes all 3 with an access violation)

> I just installed gpg4win 3.0.3 on a computer which previously didn't have

> In about 20 minutes it already has crashed about 5 times. Dirmngr and
> kleopatra are the ones crashing again and again. It crashes both if I open
> kleopatra from the windows start menu or if I use the explorer extension.
