Hmmm, this should work... it does for me

Replying to a PGP signed message results in a composition window without

Ah, you need to change Type to 4 since I added a type for PGP 6.5.x,
GnuPG was bumped to 4 instead of 3. See if that solves the problem.

which I haven't changed since the first install I performed.

If I PGP sign or encrypt a message, Evo does the right thing.  Also,

doesn't seem to be working with anyone else's key. 

hmmm, weird. Now I'm really confused. Try the 'type' change I suggested
