In a DOS Shell (Win XP) the display of all german Umlaute is wrong. In GPG
1.4.9 this works without problems.
I was about to write: That is known and we won't fix it. That it works in
1.4.9 is interesting. I need to look at it.
And why you won't fix it?
No time to look into this. Hints on how to fix this are of course welcomes
This is a long standing problem. Usually GPG is used by other utilities and
they exepct utf-8. Thus we would habe to detect the plain use of the console
and then dosomething about it.
This has since been handled in: T1691
It is fixed in Gpg4win.
