Hmm. Seems the digest algo was the problem here. I assumed GnuPG would determine from the input file which digest algo was used to hash the passphrase, but that is apparently not true. Is this information just not available in pgp 2.x encrypted files? -- ir. J.C.A. Wevers // Physics and science fiction site: // PGP/GPG public keys at
