Sorry, this did not make it into 3.1.6. But I'll definitely see about it for the next release. If it is an institutional / corporate issue you could also contract us through www.gnupg.com

fwiw. Your patch is beautiful in which it follows our coding style and
debug output. I'm confident that we will accept it but currently I have
to read up on Job's a bit.

Is there a way I could help you with this? This issue is hampering adoption
of GnuPG 2 here.

aheinecke triaged T4404: Mangled Pinentry dialog box as Low priority.

thanks for the report. Yes this is a known issue. This pinentry is so basic that it does not have dynamic layout as we don't include GUI libraries in the basic installer. For a better pinentry you can install Gpg4win.
In the future we are thinking about adding a pinentry based on the small "FLTK" toolkit, with dynamic layout.

werner triaged T4365: Encoding problem: gpg truncates multibyte characters in interactive prompts on Windows as Normal priority.

I reviewed the multibyte handling in GnuPG and you are right, there is a general problem because we use ReadConsoleA and basically GetCommandLineA, so there is no way for multibyte input unless a parameter file is used. Output is also broken, but that is easier to fix iff the input case has been fixed.

aheinecke placed T3381: dirmngr won't start on Windows 10 with admin level account up for grabs.

Just as a note: To workaround this you can also place "no-use-tor" into %APPDATA%\gnupg\dirmngr.conf (you might need to create that file) %APPDATA% expands to something like "c:\users\yourname\appdata\roaming"

On Win 10 Pro it looks like File Transfer Server.exe is running on port 9050 which could be causing the issue. See screenshots.

jegrp added a project to T4333: Job objects on Windows interfere with automatic start of gpg-agent: patch.

I've developed a simple patch that sets the CREATE_BREAKAWAY_FROM_JOB flag when creating a new background process. This flag requires a special permission on the job object, which is tested first. This means that the patch only works if the parent process sets JOB_OBJECT_LIMIT_BREAKAWAY_OK on the job object, otherwise the behavior should be as without the patch.

mjb added a comment to T4273: agent: Request insertion of smartcard when no card present.

Yes, it's running. I have a scheduled task that spawns a vbscript to ensure that gpg-agent is started on login, and restarts it on insertion of a card (specifically for two reasons: windows ssh clients don't typically start agents automatically, and windows can cause gpg-agent to get a but upset after a card is removed and re-inserted. Edit: although, I think that latter reason might be resolved now... I haven't investigated deeply. more info here and here).

When no card is inserted, usage of an ssh client simply fails to request insertion of the card for the stub keys present in ~/.gnupg/.

Why not using PowerShell? Because --with-colons does not output the required hash? But that can't be the reason because Python has the very same problem. Using Python for scripts is anyway a bit of overkill.
