The problem is probably that you want to encrypt to an untrusted key -
gpg won't allow that without special options (or would it just warn?
Don't remember).

The solution is to either gpg --edit the key and set it to be trusted,
or to sign the key locally (please don't export signatures on keys that
you haven't verified ... but you know that, I guess) with your own key.

Or, the problem could be that you recently upgraded from gpg 1.0.6: then
you probably haven't read the release-notes, and the problem is that you
don't trust your own key. (solution: read the release notes for 1.0.7,
set your own key to 'ultimate trust', rebuild the trustdb).
