Is this an ascii armored file?  0x2d is the dash used for the
hederline and the dash escaped text.  May it be that the gpg didn't
detect that it isan ascii armored file - this may happen if the first
byte of the message look like a valid CTB (byte) of a binary message.

1.0.7 detects gzipped files and silenty disables the compression. 
-z 0 may be used to force this.
