pgp export private key with password

I just tried out iPGmail a app for the iPhone which supports
pgp. However I want to import my private key and here the trouble
starts. For some reason iPGmail only supports private keys in armor
format which are password protected.

gpg --export-secret-keys --passphrase hallo --armor > oub2.asc

Did not really add a passphrase, since I could import oub2.asc as a
different user, without being asked the password.

Any advice is strongly appreciated.
