This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on
pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

This is fixed as well as it can be. Old versions will no longer throw
an exception all
the time. You can now get the version of GnuPG with

the TO variable is not interpolated inside single quotes. That means
GPG never receives the correct email address with which to fetch the
correct keys. That may be why your script fails.

From the debug output you've linked to in this report, it looks like
your version of GnuPG doesn't have the --no-agent option, and this is
what's causing the unknown error. Given the appropriate GnuPG version, I
can test Crypt_GPG against it and fix the problem. I've only ever tested
with 1.4.x version.

I'll grab a copy of 1.0.6 and fix this when I get a chance. In the
meantime, using version 1.4.x will probably fix the problem.

Server Admins say:
"The version of GnuPG is 1.4.6."
