I've just encountered a pgp encrypted (symetrically w/o public key) file
that wasn't decryptable by gpg. gpg told me the password were wrong which
made me panicing until I tried the old 2.6.2ai pgp which decrypts it but
shows a message saying that the content is for my eyes only and only 
shows it on screen.

Why can't gpg decrypt it?
