We have seen this today also in another Kleoptra warning box. The text was not
localized but the error description (from gpg-error) had a broken Umlaut.

Yeah I broke that by fixing GnuPG to output Console Encoding. Kleo uses Qt
::fromLocal8Bit which expects the GUI CP.

Messy stuff, need to figure out how to get the ACP through Qt or the QT Name of
the console codepage for conversion. This not only here but everywhere where
Kleo shows GnuPG's console output. There are also some bugs about this at

This was fixed with kleo rev 289efa360f6b15a3389ea2f2efede352711e7d7e
