[snip] Janusz A. Urbanowicz quoted (in a private email to me, which I have been given permission by him to mention here) the following section from RFC 2440, page 46, paragraph 6.4: Any characters outside of the base64 alphabet are ignored in Radix-64 data. Decoding software must ignore all line breaks or other characters not found in the table above. So, it indeed looks like GnuPG should cope with it and issue a warning as is suggested in the paragraph following the above one.
