Should be fixed in the next version.

I think this issue is not resolved completely:
Currently I can see the same behaviour as descrived in T5330 (https://dev.gnupg.org/T5350) in all current versions of Kleopatra.

I have the feeling, that it is probably not only an issue with UNC paths, since I also see the problem, when I mount the network share into a drive letter and operate on this drive.
This problem can't be seen with non-network paths, i.e. no problem with local paths.

Seen in:

  • Kleopatra / Gpg4Win-4.0.3 (and some earlier versions)

Tested with:

  • Win 10-german, Win11-german, Win11-english (i.e. it is not language related)
