I'm getting a really weird error when I try and read messages I've
encrypted to other people.  I can read messages *they* encrypt to *me*
just fine, and i can encrypt to them and they can read that, but when
I try to view those messages that i've encrypted to them, i get the
following error (in mutt):

gpg: Ohhhh jeeee: ... this is a bug (getkey.c:2208:lookup)
secmem usage: 1696/1696 bytes in 4/4 blocks of pool 1696/16384
[-- End of PGP output --]

i get the same thing when i try this on the command line on the
message i've sent:

orange:~> gpg --decrypt message.gpg

gpg: Ohhhh jeeee: ... this is a bug (getkey.c:2208:lookup)
secmem usage: 1472/1472 bytes in 3/3 blocks of pool 1472/16384
zsh: 23768 abort      gpg --decrypt message.gpg

I've seen this error before, but never in this context (before it was
in the context of a corrupt secret key).  I've upgraded my version of
gnupg a billion times; right now i'm running 1.2.1-2 (so says dpkg

has anyone seen this before?  i'm really confused as to why i
shouldn't be able to read these messages!
