On the PGPNET mailing list, a couple of members' keys cannot be
encrypted to by a member using GnuPG 2.x. People using 1.x have no
such issue. IIRC, the keys that 2.x won't encrypt to were generated at
Hushmail.com, and use the deprecated "RSA sign-only" and
"RSA encrypt-only" public key algorithms (algos 2 and 3) instead of
using RSA (algo 1) with the "key flags" subpacket.
If any of your contacts have similar keys you may experience this.
