Summary:
pressing the [x] button sends a key to the key server instead of cancelling the send.

Detailed description
Operating system: "Windows 7" (wald site does not have an option to specify this OS)

(The About GPA dialog gives me the following data:

"GPA version 0.9.4 [0ce64fe]; GnuPG 2.0.22)



1. create a key

2. go to the key manager

3. open 'detailed view'

4. right click on your key and select 'send keys...' submenu

5. you must see a box now that says "The selected key will be sent to a public key server ("hkp://keys.gnupg.net";). Are you sure you want to distribute this key? [Yes] [No]

6. do not press either 'yes' or 'no' but go to the next step

7. press the [x] button at the top right corner of the textbox -- just to close the textbox.

8. the next textbox appears saying: "GPA Message" "The keys have been sent to the server"



This is a critical bug as I did not want my keys to be public. Yet now they ARE.



Thank you very much for the software anyway.
