How to send passphrase to gpg with symetric encryption?

I tried the following method suggested by one of the list members:
echo "1234" | gpg --passphrase-fd 0 -c test.txt
It *seems* to encrypt without error (well, at least it does *not* ask
for the passphrase) but when I try to decrypt the
message again with this command:
gpg -d test.gpg
I get the error message "decryption failed: bad key"
I tried it from the commandline and in a batch file.
Any hints what I may be doing wrong?
