Imported Pubilc and Generated Private Keys Missing.

I installed GPGTools last night, and installed the nightly build of the GPGServices package. I shut down my computer, and when I restarted my computer (OS X 10.6.8) and booted up GPGTools this morning, My keychain contains none of the Public keys that I pasted last night, and (more troublingly) neither of my generated private keys. Is there somewhere they might be stored that I can find them? What happened?

    Hey Jason, I haven't heard of such behavior before.

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble. Have you already uploaded the created keys to a key server?

    If not, I'd suggest to simply create a new key and see if this time it sticks. The keys should not get touched because of a system restart.

    Let us know if you encounter more problems or if this still is broken for you. Which version of GPG Keychain Access are you using?

    All the best,
