Fix GPGTools (web)
New user, got my buddies and myself setup and working on the Mac. I was looking to encrypt a file, but the Services did not seem to be working on 10.6 so I pushed the "Fix GPGTools" button in the Preference panel. This appears to have broken my installation and made GPG Keychain Access complain about a GPG Config Error: Ups, something went wrong. GPG was found on your system but there seems to be a problem with the config file. Please contact the GPGTools team http://www.gpgtools.org/about.html. So here I am.
No keys are listed in the pref, I get a blank item with a check mark. Mail complains that I have no keys. Apparently everything is in ~/.gnupg so Time Machine doesn't back it up, so I can't restore to a working state.

Mh, sorry for that. First I would like to know what happened with the file ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf. Could you please attach it?

Here's my gpg.conf
I did touch one thing after the fact, in an effort to identify my default key I changed the default-key value to what it is now with no visible effect. I'm not even sure that's a proper value, I got it from the name of the .asc file I emailed to my friends, since I can't see my keys at this point. I did send them to the keyserver though, though perhaps that's only the public side.

We found an issue with the auto fix tool. Please delete the last line of your config. This should help...
sent from my mobile phone,
please excuse my brevity
