Apparently the packet type/length information for the conventionally
encrypted packet is wrong.

As I reported earlier, with

        gpg -ca --s2k-mode 0 {file}

the literal data packet is invalid (it is an old-format indeterminate
length packet, but the packet header is follwed by two length bytes).

Maybe these problems are related.
