Hi all,
I have an issue which is described below:

earlier i was using Gnupg-1.0.6 for my appliaction. Now i have replaced it
with Gnupg-1.4.9.
I am facing some issue related to keyrings. As per my application. 
I need to perform following application.

I did finally get these encrypt/decrypt procedures to work:

	gpg (1.0.6) for encryption followed by gpg (1.4.9) for decryption
        gpg (1.4.9) for encryption followed by gpg (1.0.6) for decryption

	But for that i have to use same ( gnupg-1.0.6 ) keyrings file for both

as for Gnupg-1.4.9 ~.gnupg/gpg.conf and ~.gnupg/options are default options

I am having some trouble understanding why keys created (--gen-key) using
the 'gpg'
of Gnupg-1.4.9 can't be exported to the Gnupg-1.0.6 key ring properly.
The gpge(2.0) followed by gpgd(1.2) fails in ths case... I'm puzzled, for

Could anyone please help me ASAP in sorting out this problem so that my
application could work properly.

Thanks in advance.
