I am getting CRC errors when I try to decrypt a message encrypted with
Here they are:

>frank@sun62$>cat test1.asc | gpg --decrypt > test1.gpg
>gpg (GnuPG) 0.9.6; Copyright (C) 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

>gpg: Warning: using insecure memory!
>gpg: CRC error; 7715ce - dc3771
The second error (another file) might give more clues:
>gpg: CRC error; 13b497 - dc313b
>gpg: quoted printable character in armor - probably a buggy MTA has >been used
The message was encrypted with ascii armor, send with eudora on Win98, recieved with Netscape on the sun and saved as is to test1.asc. Any clues? CU, Frank
