Hi.  I transferred the file in question to the machine which does have the pub/sec key on the keyring.
I do not wish to delete the key on that machine as I definitely do have a lot of email which was sent encrypted with the pub key and which I need the sec key to read.

So, I withdraw my withdrawal of the bug report.  It makes it pretty much useless for me on that machine, unless I were to encode the keyid explicitly.

I tried deleting just the public key, but alas, no such luck.

    gpg: there is a secret key for public key "4253BDD3FF52DC13"!
    gpg: use option "--delete-secret-keys" to delete it first.

Hi.  Actually, I had a closer look at the key, and all I had was the
revoked public key, not the private bit.
So I deleted it.

I still maintain that EasyPG should act the same as gpg when it comes to
specifying recipients.

I have a test file named Test1.gpg with the following at the top:

I write out the file. It throws this error:

The problem is that EasyPG selects the revoked key. The solution is
*not* to delete the revoked key from my keyring. I need the revoked key
to be able to decode email previously sent encrypted using this revoked
I did some googling and saw that there have been at least two other
reports of this issue, but someone hacked up a kluge specifically for
email, rather than fixing the general case.
