Sorry, not very well today, and it seems not thinking straight. So why
is there an issue with compatibility?

This happens as soon as you switch your software without updating all
copies of your public key.  In particular downgrading the software is
troublesome but also upgrading sometimes (e.g. Tiger/192 has been
removed).  You might also have two different applications using the
same keypair.

For the average user the preferences work.
