I have both gpg 1.4.7 and gpg2 2.0.3 installed under MacOSX.

I had SHA224 enabled in personal-digest-preferences, and when listing
for gpg2:

$ gpg2 -v -v --list-keys
gpg: invalid item `SHA224' in preference string
gpg: invalid personal digest preferences

but when listing for gpg
$ gpg -v -v --list-keys
gpg: using classic trust model
[all listed keys listed]

Once I removed SHA224 from personal-digest-preferences,
both gpg2 and gpg listed keys smoothly.

It *would seem* that it is gpg2 (not gpg) that does not support SHA224.
