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.
