GPG seems broken on FC13 after upgrade.

Thanks for the update.  

As most of my GnuPG use is via script I normally do not see problems it
is when I am trying to resolve problem that I run into issues where the
new interface requires X or curses to interact with GnuPG.  

Of course better error messages about not being able to connect to X
would have been very useful when I first noted the problem.

(i.e. gnupg 2.x) package to replace it.  This breaks all sorts of
scripts and things that were written to use 1.4.x.

FWIW, the new 2.0.16 may help to mitigate this problem if the
--use-standard-socket option is used.  The agent will then be started if
needed.  You can't use this feature if your home directory is NFS
mounted or you are not using X.
