AES cipher support 1.0.6 and 1.0.7

I encrypted a 2GB file using a DH/DSS 2048/1024 (AES-128) keypair using
a third party tool.

I gave the encrypted file to GPG 1.0.6 but it failed to decrypt the
message with the following reason:

gpg: protection algorithm 254 is not supported
gpg: encrypted with 2048-bit ELG-E key, ID 3F29C018, created 2004-04-16
      "GPG-DH-2048 <gpgDH2048 at>"
gpg: public key decryption failed: unknown cipher algorithm
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available

Then I gave the encrypted file to GPG 1.0.7 and the decryption

I'm wondering if this is due to AES support, or lack of, in the two

If anyone knows, please let me know.
