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. - -- Frank Tobin "To learn what is good and what is to be valued, those truths which cannot be shaken or changed."
