Basically this boils down to the application being unable to exclusively lock the memory page because it doesn't have root powers.

To fix this, set-UID-root /usr/bin/gpg.

# chmod 4555 /usr/bin/gpg

The 'official page' at >>http://www.gnupg.org/faq.html is much wordier but effectively says the same thing.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
