gnupg v1.2.1

	I followed the steps in the pgp2gnupg howto document; however, I
receive the following error:
# echo 'hello world' | pgpe -r <keyid> | gpg --decrypt
No files specified.  Using stdin.

  1024 bits, Key ID <value>, Created 2001-09-11

You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: ""
gpg: public key decryption failed: bad passphrase
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available

When I retry the steps and include the step to create a blank passphrase, I
get a "bad passphrase" error.

Any suggestions?

I am running gnupg 1.2.1 on hpux 11.11 system.
