The personal-xxxxx-preferences commands only apply during operations
that involve a recipient.  Otherwise, --digest-algo is used.

However, read the gnupg-users thread entitled "Personal prefs" from
November of 2002.  Someone asked the same question back then, and the
development GnuPG was changed to consult personal-digest-preferences
if digest-algo was not set.
