Large file issues again (win32)

Hi all.

I recently encrypted (for testing purposes) 4,36 GB file using my public
key. I used official debian 3.1r0a DVD ISO image #1 as initial file.

The command was:
gpg -e -r [recipient] -v [file]

Then I unsuccessfully tried to decrypt file using the same way, after
this I use method which was decribed here:

Now I'm trying to decrypt file and receive the following:

C:\folder>gpg -d -v < file.gpg > file
gpg: public key is 0xBF3D3DC2
gpg: using subkey 0xBF3D3DC2 instead of primary key 0x500B8987


gpg: encrypted with 4096-bit ELG-E key, ID 0xBF3D3DC2, created 2005-08-06
      "lusfert <lusfert at>"
gpg: TWOFISH encrypted data
gpg: original file name='debian-dvd-1.iso'
gpg: buffer shorter than attribute subpacket
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=45)
node 00B1A160 00/00 type=gpg-control ctrl=3 len=0
node 00B1A028 00/00 type=user-id  "[bad attribute packet of size 135]" ....
gpg: invalid root packet detected in proc_tree()
node 00B1A028 00/00 type=user-id  "[bad attribute packet of size 135]" ....
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=10)
gpg: WARNING: encrypted message has been manipulated!
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=30)

Every time only 391 739 392 bytes of output file were written before
error occurs.

Thus it seems workaround described in previous messages doesn't help.

GnuPG 1.4.2 official build, Windows XP SP2 Pro, standard cmd.exe

Is it possible to solve this problem?

With best regards,
Current OpenPGP key ID: 0x500B8987
Fingerprint: E883 045D 36FB 8CA3 8D69  9C79 9E35 3B56 500B 8987
Encrypted e-mail preferred.
