Have you set up a display-filter ?

One of the lines in my .pinerc reads:

   display-filters=_LEADING("-----BEGIN PGP ")_ /usr/local/bin/gpg --decrypt

, and it processes everything quite nicely.

Can you decrypt on the command line ok in that OS?  It's not a problem
with having ported your secret key from Windows to a unix, is it?  (I
think that one's in the FAQs, but you need to set your passphrase to be
an empty string whilst you port it)
