revoking user id

I recently attempted to revoke an invalid user ID from my public
key, using "revsig" in the --edit-keys menu.  The revocation failed,
with the following error message:

gpg: fatal: idea encryption failed

I had signed the user ID with my old RSA key.  I ended up using PGP5
to revoke the invalid user ID, and re-importing the key into gpg.
Should it have been possible to revoke the user ID in gpg?
