The delay could be due to gpgsm connecting (or trying to, at least) to
a server to check for certificate revocation lists, in order to
properly verify whether the signing certificate is still valid. Gpgsm
has a configuration option "disable-crl-checks" to disable that,
although I have no idea where to put it on Windows. Gpg4win
documentation and their mailing list might help there.
