The problem I would guess, is that the default symmetric algorithm used to
encrypt GnuPG secret keys is Blowfish, which is not supported by PGP.
I don't know how you could go about resolving this issue; that is, I don't
know how you could get GnuPG to change the algorithm used to encrypt an
already-created secret key. There is an option "s2k-cipher-algo", but
according to the documentation in the manpage, is not clear that this may
have any effect while not generating a key.
