I tried to edit the contents, but when I click on GnuPG in system  
preferences I get the message  "You cannot open GnuPG preferences  
pane on this computer. Contact the developer of this software for a  
newer version." Anyone have any idea what my problem is? Should I try  
to reinstall? (I'm using 1.4.7.)  Or is there some work-around?

I looked at this last night, and may take a crack at editing it if I  
can't get the preference panel to work.

Thanks or the help.
Version: GnuPG v1.4.7 (Darwin)
