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.
