I have a SPARC machine with linux here.

I have installed the same version of GNUPG (1.0.6) and tested with
the same data directory (the i386 linux box, mounted onto the sparc).

Here's an interesting thing: the SPARC produces exactly the SAME key
ids as the iMac. The ids are different from the ids on the i386 box
so I can't decrypt stuff that was encrypted with my published public

But it's interesting none the less.
