What are the actual permissions on the .gpg file in question, and the directory that contains it?

Given your history, it sounds possible that your ~/.gnupg (or wherever you keep GNUPGHOME) was copied improperly.

Alternatively, and especially if your old GNUPGHOME was not in ~/.gnupg/, maybe there's something hiccuppie in Aquamacs' reading of environment variables during start-up; check the top of *Messages* for surprises, notably the "Shell:" line and the "NN environment variables imported from login shell" line and its neighborhood.
