when running gnorpm-auth group ID is not properly changed to
	root anymore- it retains the groupid of the spawning user-
	which may represent a security hole. I am finding the groupIO
	of my usual console user ID all over the system ever since I 
	upgraded to the new gnorpm-auth which was a rerelease of the
	non-functioning gnorpm-auth recently released.(gnorpm package)
	in order to be safe I must now run 'su -c gnorpm' rather than

In gnorpm-0.96, gnorpm.keys no longer mentions gnorpm-auth by default.
