This happened to me just yesterday while I was importing a batch of=20 keys from a keyserver. I don't know what causes it, but you can=20 remove the lockfile. Look in .gnupg/ for a file that ends in .lock=20 and delete it. =20 --=20 Drew Bloechl --wRRV7LY7NUeQGEoC Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Comment: For info see iD8DBQE5AK8I2DExozOFVRYRApb/AJ9YQUVvhZZoPCVBm/LvZekbBVF7UQCdEh47 wJlV0yMZx4sRREIsruTbeJQ= =71XG -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --wRRV7LY7NUeQGEoC--
