When I wrote it, I did a lot of black-box testing against PGP 8 (I
must have made hundreds of test signatures).  So long as you use the
"PGP" trust model (remember that if you upgraded to 1.4.0 from 1.2.x,
you may still have the "classic" trust model), both programs should
behave the same way.

To see what trust model your trustdb is using, use:

  gpg --check-trustdb

To update an old trustdb to the PGP trust model, use:

  gpg --trust-model pgp --check-trustdb

After that, gpg will always use the PGP model until you change it
