Yes, I've discussed it on both Fedora and Mandriva lists.  I think it's the 
old problem of intermittant faults being difficult to pinpoint.  As I said, 
I've done many, many installs and setups of kmail + gpg, yet never met this 
problem until F9, and I can't see any difference between the setup there and 
the setup on this laptop where it works, so it's not surprising that people 
haven't seen it.

The only gpg ML I found was PGP-Basics at yahoogroups.com.  I can't help feeling 
that there should be a better list than that.  Maybe I hit bad timing.  I'll 
try them again.
