Our processes to encrypt data failed last night, and GPG returned the
following information:
gpg: WARNING: using insecure memory!
gpg: please see for more information
gpg: note: random_seed file is empty
gpg: fatal: can't connect to `/var/spool/prngd/pool': Connection refused

Can someone explain why we would have received these messages?  I verified
the random_seed file was not empty, and I do not know what
/var/spool/prngd/pool is.
