What version of gpg are you using? This was a known bug in 1.0.4, where
this message would appear on the default algo Rijndael. You can change it
in g10/misc.c in function print_cipher_algo_note(), or update to 1.0.6.
When you're at it, you can just as easy add IDEA to the list of
non-deprecated algorithms to prevent gpg from whining when it encounters
a pgp 2.X encrypted file.
