I recall that I once tested it and it used to work.  However it is a
long time ago so no guarantee.  My current test machine has not enough
space to run a test right now.

What will always work is to use

  gpg --encrypt-files -r "System Administrator" -z 0 < FILENAME > FILENAME.GPG

Note the '<' and '>'.  Using redirection gpg won't know anything about
the file seize and simply encrypt everything coming in on the stdin to
stdout.  Decryption work similar.
