The file is corrupted (a 4096-byte page full of zereos), at seemingly random places, but not near the front of the file.

The file was encrypted with PGP 5.0.  I tried to decrypt with PGP 5.0 and that didn't work.  Should I try with gpg?  Does gpg behave gracefully if the input file is corrupted?  I don't normally use gpg: can I decrypt a file with gpg that was originally encrypted with pgp 5.0?
