One of us is misunderstanding the other, but I'm not sure which of 
us is which. :-)

When I removed that "bad line", I was able to run example3 just fine,
which I believe means the code could then encrypt something using
just the public key, as the routine in question doesn't need the 
private key *except* for the unnecessary verification step.

Does removing that line not allow your code to work?
