I'm using RedHat 7.1. The shells are straight from what came with that:
tcsh 6.10 and bash 2.04. I am running XFree86 4.1 (which is part of the
reason for the -ac kernel; most of the rest of the reason is just that I'm
a freak who likes to compile kernels). However, I expect that has no
bearing whatsoever on the behavior of command-line gpg and pipes and so
tcsh doesn't always pipe stderr and stdout together; you have to use "|&"
to get them to pipe together. I use that fairly frequently, to see the
stdout of something but to send the stderr elsewhere (e.g. /dev/null, or
just to the console to be wiped out the first time I use a less "redraw").
