I occasionally receive messages encrypted by older PGP versions that are
not being decrypted by GNUPG 1.4.7
[scrubbed] gpg filename
gpg: assuming IDEA encrypted data
Enter passphrase: [scrubbed]
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=67)
gpg: WARNING: message was not integrity protected
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=0a)
Here is the output of gpg --version:
[scrubbed] gpg --version
gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.7

Is this normal behaviour? I'm getting round by using PGP to decrypt IDEA
messages that gpg won't decrypt but gpg does work with some IDEA
messages so I can't figure whats wrong.
