I only know what my guys tell me :) They say we have 1.2.6 on one
machine (the linux machine) and 1.2.0 on the other (the other unix
machine). And someone else told me that Unix and Linux had different
versions of gpg, I didn't check that out, so apologies if it isn't the

Hmmm, Linux is as much a Unix as any other Unix. What do you mean by
version 1.2? gnupg 1.2.0? All Unix versions are identical in particular

removal. The only problem I recall are those with large files; that is
the usual 2 GB problem on some machines.
