Although counter-intuitive, many MacGPG2 issues are resolved by a
reboot, as recommended as part of the install process.

Unfortunately, this is as a result of 'shoe-horning' a Unix-based
program into MacOSX.

Should your problems persist, please try the MacGPG2 list as
recommended in Charly's email.
