I don't think so. The quasi-1991 encoding was a leftover from the
GnuPG 0.x days. It was nonstandard.
If you are unable to handle 2.6.3 messages, that may be a bug. I'll
try and duplicate your problem here.

One more code path. It was no longer needed since no program has
generated this type of file for years.
