[Bug 390311] Re: encryption of files fails with [GNUPG:] INV_RECP

After a fresh install of Kubuntu 10.4 a couple weeks ago, I added gpg2
and edited my KMail configuration to use my old key, which was accepted
for both signing and encryption.   However, sending an email to my self
I found that my passphrase was not acceptable for decrypting, while it
was acceptable for editing the key!  ???

So, I revoked my old key and created a new 4096 key.  Replacing the old
key ID in KMail with the new Key ID I find that KMail accepted my new
key ID to sign with but it refuses to accept that key ID to encrypt.
The recommendation from the nabble link does apply, since I can insert
my new key ID for signing, but even though my new key is the only key on
my ring KMail refuses to allow me to use it as an encryption key.

 When I use Dolphin and attempt to encrypt an ascii file I get the
"[GNUPG:] INV_RECP 0" error msg and the attempt fails.

When I use gpg from the command line gpg refuses to recognize either my
short or my long ID:

jerry at sonyvgnfw140e:~$ gpg -e lindalshw.txt
Enter the user ID.  End with an empty line: **************
No such user ID.
gpg: no valid addressees
gpg: lindalshw.txt: encryption failed: no such user id

encryption of files fails with [GNUPG:] INV_RECP
