    Default GNUPG2 insecure memory warning

    GnuPG Frequently Asked Questions - GnuPG.org I chmod-ed 4755 (setUID=root) /usr/bin/gpg2 but I still get warnings about insecure memory (I operate machine through SSH only).
    Code:
    felipe@suse-amd:~> stat /usr/bin/gpg2
      File: `/usr/bin/gpg2'
      Size: 745628          Blocks: 1472       IO Block: 4096   regular file

    I should probably add i'm using opensuse 11.0 on this particular machine. And, I don't want to "hide" the messages, I want to utilise 'secured' memory capability.
