There has to be something special in your environment because it usually does
not do this. We are mainly testing in VirtualBox windows VM's. Maybe some
security Software? Do you have some "Anti Virus" solution installed they are
often the cause of strange problems?

What is your Virtualisation software?

The default pinentry (pinentry-qt) uses some aggressive hacks to become the
foreground window. E.g. it tries to attach itself to the current foreground
thread to raise itself. That may be an issue. We ship alternative pinentries.

In the Gpg4win installation directory please rename "pinentry.exe" to something
else and rename pinentry-w32.exe to pinentry.exe

Pinentry-w32 is ugly but may be more robust. You can also try pinentry-gtk as a
compromise between uglyness and robustness but I think this requires that you
have installed GPA.

It would also be helpful if you could confirm that this is still an issue in
the upcoming gpg4win 3.0 https://wiki.gnupg.org/Gpg4win/Testversions
