UTF8 passphrase problem (I think)

I just used kgpg to create a key pair on Suse 9.1, which uses UTF8
encoding, and it works fine.
I imported a key pair I made last year on Suse 8.2, which used an 8859
encoding, and I can't enter a valid passphrase. Or rather the key pair
was already present, I think.
The same applies to two sets of keys on a floppy key ring made by PGP
5.0 back in 1998, One was made by 5.0, and the other was imported from
2.6 way back when. That was on a Windows machine.
Can anyone explain what is going on? I think it is a UTF8 issue. I'm
just getting started on gpg and kgpg after a long absense.
