Is the following behavior correct?
The file ~/.gnupg/options contains an option "comment" with value "é
eacute"; file has been saved using UTF8 encoding.
The file /tmp/test contains same text "é eacute", but in iso-8859-1.
Performing the command
gpg --charset iso-8859-1 --clearsign /tmp/test
creates a new file /tmp/test.asc which contains invalid text: there is a
mix of iso-8859-1 (for the body) and UTF8 (for the signature) charsets!
It seems that comment is copied as is, i.e. not converted to --charset
(what is furthermore not always possible...), thus result is totally
(I'm working with GnuPG 1.0.7 on MacOS X 10.1.4.)
