	* encode.c (encode_simple): Make sure that files larger than about
	4G use partial length encoding.  This is required because OpenPGP
	allows only for 32 bit length fields.

Unfortunately 1.2.1 was released 4 days earlier.  Please try 1.2.2 or
if you have build problems, 1.2.3rc1 from the gcrypt/alpha/gnupg

The output of --list-packets mostly refers to RFC2440.
