don't warn about password too simple when it's clearly not

Reported by steve | February 7th, 2018 @ 02:30 PM

Testing some stuff in GPG Keychain I created a key with the following password:

this is a random password with spaces and umlauten äöü and umlauten ä with ü spaces ü oh and it is also reaaaaaalllllllllyyyyy looooonnnnngggg_.,., ´`´` and has a few special characters like ˚ and £££££

GPG Keychain warns about "Password too simple". This is clearly not the case. Unsure which rule is not met. Maybe that no numbers are included. But as we all know longer passwords are more secure than short password containing of 1 special character and a number.

These warnings may be coming from gnupg in which case we should file a ticket with them.
