When I decrypt a file, the following happens:

You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "=C5smund Skj=E6veland <>"
1024-bit ELG-E key, ID 5132B6E4, created 2000-02-29 (main key ID 54B975CE)

gpg: encrypted with 1024-bit ELG-E key, ID 5132B6E4, created 2000-02-29
      "=C3smund Skj=C3=A6veland <>"
Note the two alternative spellings of my name. The second is incorrect.
The locale is set correctly, as far as I know. But it may not have been when
I made the key.

I see that this is probably the same unicode decoding problem that others
have asked about. What confuses me, though, is that the error only occurs
once, though my name occurs twice. I figured that the error might be in that
the first time, the name is read from the encrypted file, and the second
time from the secret key. But the secret key looks okay when viewed with=20
gpg --edit-key.
