I don't know if it is still like it, but at one time pgp and gnupg used different symmetric algorithms for encrypting private keys. The solution is to remove the passphrase using gnupg and then put it back using pgp. I certainly moved a pgp 5 key to gnupg without problems, but I never tried to do the reverse. -- Pete
