You created the secret key with gpg and copied it over to PGP I
assume. GPG creates preferences to the Twofish algorithm and
therefore it tries to use Twofish and the new MDC encryption packet
which PGP 6.5.8 does not understand.
1. Update to PGP 7.0
2. Use "gpg --disable-cipher twofish" ( you may want to put it
MDC packets are needed to avoid a (not so) new choosen ciphertext attack,
therefore it is a good idea to use the first solution.
