Kleopatra Generating (lots of) System Processes - Win7 x64

When I start Kleopatra - on a Win 7 x64 system - tcpview shows a slew of system processes starting up on the localhost initiated on port 5xxxx with a destination port on the localhost of port (primarily) 50083 - all in a time_wait state.

It resembles a port scan in a way. This activity ceases once I shut Kleopatra down.

I’ve searched the Forum and haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere. Does anyone know what this is all about?


Here’s the Kleopatra version info for gpg4win v2.2.2
