The key is not compressed, and the session key used is 128 or 168
bits. So it is a matter of the message size. The problem may be
that gpg does not gve constant chunks of data to zlib but may provide
some hundered bytes and then some K. I assume there is a problem in
the buffering code (either in GnuPG or zlib).
