I followed the steps to add preferences.  No preferences were added.  

Do I understand that v1.07 will have the ability to directly change the

Hmm.  I tried encrypting to your key here with 7.0.3 and all was well.

I don't know what was exactly was changed between 7.0.1 and 7.0.3 (or
if what was changed is relevant to this problem).  That said, here are
two things to try:

1) Add preferences to your key and give it to the customer to try
   again.  You can add preferences by going to the --edit menu, using
   "delsig" to delete your self-signature, then using "sign" to
   re-sign it with itself.  (gpg -u 1B32D54B --edit 1B32D54B)
