Because you have not specified a file, GPG tries to read from stdin.
Because there is nothing there, you see that message. The --default-key
is more for gpg.conf (the name makes more sense in this context) than to
be supplied on the command line. If you wish to make the default signing
key 0x12345578, add
to your gpg.conf. As John mentioned, you can override that preference
for a particular invocation with --local-user (or -u for short).
Based on your reply to the others' messages, I think your problem is
just that you are not giving GPG a file to work with.
