Certainly it's a real error.  But it's not a fatal error, as the gpg man
page states error code 2 to mean.  IMO it should have its own error code
so that it can be tested for specifically since error code 2 is too
generic and could signify a bunch of other problems as well.

Sorry, I missed the version number.  Gnupg 1.4.0.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
