The problem was on the PGP end. The company using PGP6.x couldn't 
decrypt, and the error message, "bad session keys" indicates that 
the it didn't recognize the algorithm used, (probably AES or 
another one that came after PGP 6.x. )

David's advice of using the option of --PGP6 on the GnuPG side will 
make everything work again on the PGP end.
