Please contact me if you need an up-to-date windows version - It is
possible but I won't do this on a voluntary basis.

I don't know whether I understand it correct.  The problem is the
passphrase - I have not yet figured out what is wrong on my salted and
iterated S2K implementaion which is what pgp5 uses to protect secret
keys.  The workaround is easy: remove the passphrase, export, import,
and set the passphrase again (on BOTH copies).  But be sure that you
have the full control over both machines and noone can steal your
unprotected secret key during this process.
