Does this "quasi-1991 partial length encoding" refer to the
"indeterminate length" packet encoding?

Is this the reason I can't decrypt a file that has been conventionally
encrypted with pgp 2.6.3ia anymore with 1.3.6? I can decode the same
file with gpg 1.2.4 without problems.

Why is this support removed?
