textmode encryption strips trailing blanks

I encrypt data files that are to be loaded onto a
OS/390 mainframe that need to be fixed block files
(there are trailing blanks/spaces).  These are removed
by gpg 1.4.1 (WIN32).  This does not happen with
McAfee e-Business Server v8.0 for Windows.  The only
sequence I was able to get them to remain was adding
--rfc1991 to the encryption, but I believe that
disables the textmode option.  Is this a bug that will
be remedied in v1.4.2?
