This is a known bug.  Restarting the client usually didn't help, and
reinstall certainly doesn't do anything.  The problem was caused by lack
of spawn tunnel synchronization between client and server

There was a workaround found... even mentioned, I think, in the 1.0 read
me.  The workaround didn't work in every situation, so the bug would
still show up intermittently.  If mod-makers are listening, the
workaround was to delay creation of the spawn points for about 20secs,
to allow clients to connect to the server (so they receive the object
creation events in order.

The spawn point system has since been rewritten heavily, and this bug
should be soundly squished in 1.1.

Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (MingW32)
