[GnuPG 1.0.6, Linux]

gpg can be made to die by putting an 'encrypt-to' command in the options file with no argument. For example:


gives this output on running any gpg command:

gpg: some signal caught ... exiting
Segmentation fault 

This only occurs if there is no whitespace or text after the 'encrypt-to'. Is this a known bug, or do I win some kind of substantial cash prize? :-)

I prefer PGP/GPG encrypted mail. I may read the other sort... or not ;)
