@Gavin: deterministic wallets sounds way better.

should i give the backup implementation a try? would be my first contact to bitcoind.
i've planned to attach an "IsBackuped"-Attribute to every address inside the keypool and to show a warning as there are now more (or only a few) "backuped" addresses left.

^^ do you think this is still a good idea? how fast is this bip going to be implemented?

A quick and small patch doesn't hurt if it's a good one Smiley IMHO. Btw. IsInBackup sounds less weird!?

thanks.. my english is always a little weird.

If you have a keypool of 100 keys and use a key the oldest key in the keypool is added to the active key portion of the wallet and the a new key created and added to the keypool.  The keypool will always be 100 keys.  The question is are there any keys in the keypool which aren't in your last backup.

This isn't true.  The keypool of encrypted wallets can only be refilled if the passphrase is known.

See my answer here for more details of how it works: http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/4095/how-does-bitcoind-generate-a-new-address-if-the-wallet-is-encrypted
