Don't you think this could be an example of "be conservative in what you generate, and liberal in what you accept"? Generate perfect RFC-compliant messages, sure, but maybe GnuPG should accept messages that are somewhat broken (especially in this case, which is a difference of whitespace only). Maybe we need a --strict and --nostrict :) David -- David Shaw | | WWW +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+ "There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX.
