I had the same thing happen. Look in ~/.gnupg, and delete the *.lock files. Mine was caused by ctrl-c'ing after waiting over 2 minuites to retrieve a key. That should fix you up. BTW, the 1295 refers to the process that was originally running gpg. HTH. Merell --=20 Merell L. Matlock, Jr. When crypto is outlawed, only outlaws Linux#: 149839 and politicians will have crypto.
