Then it works OK, even without using the --pgp2 option. In my gpg.conf
file there are no digest options so I'm not overriding an incorrectly
set one. 

vulcan:~/test> gpg --s2k-digest-algo md5 scc.cpp.pgp
gpg: It is only intended for test purposes and should NOT be
gpg: used in a production environment or with production keys!
gpg: assuming IDEA encrypted data
gpg: WARNING: message was not integrity protected

The error I got was

gpg: decryption failed: bad key

so I tried removing references to default keys in gpg.conf (since I thought
perhaps the hash preferences are taken from the key). But this didn't help.
