I have reports from a friend that my with GnuPG generated key ...

*gpg --list-key bellon
pub  1024D/05360CB9 2001-01-30 Stefan Bellon <>

sub  1024G/29A4B4DA 2001-01-30

... which is available from my homepage as well (just in case you want
to test it) gives the following error when imported into PGP 6.5.8 for
Windows: "An error has occurred: bad parameter". Every operation with
the key "seems" to work ok, but on the other hand, everytime an
operation involves the key, the above error message is thrown. As I
don't use PGP (and Windows either), I can't verify that.

What exactly is the problem with this key in compatibility respects to
PGP 6.5.8?

Thanks in advance.
