I get a bus error trying to decrypt:
kosh:~/t$ gpg --verbose <edate
gpg: armor header: Version: GnuPG v1.0.0 (GNU/Linux)
gpg: armor header: Comment: For info see http://www.gnupg.org
gpg: public key is 2481455C
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "James R. Van Zandt <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
1024-bit ELG-E key, ID 2481455C, created 2000-08-16 (main key ID 061E8FC3)
I also get a bus error generating a new key:
You need a Passphrase to protect your secret key.
We need to generate a lot of random bytes. It is a good idea to perform
some other action (type on the keyboard, move the mouse, utilize the
disks) during the prime generation; this gives the random number
generator a better chance to gain enough entropy.

I'm using an SGI under IRIX 6.5:
IRIX64 kosh 6.5 05190004 IP30 mips
This is bug #6 shown at http://www.gnupg.org/buglist.html:
[ **] #6 1999-02-22 0.9.3
Bus error on IRIX 6.4: Crash while doing a keygen. I think while creating
the prime. Other bus errors are reported when doing a "gpg README"
--> Solaris fixed.
--> IRIX bug still there but someone should test this again!
( reports that it is still alive in 1.0.0)
(seems to be fixed now. wk 2000-01-14)
Apparently it is not fixed after all.
