Problem after going from gpg 1.2.6 to 1.4.5

We upgraded from gpg 1.2.6 to 1.4.5 on "Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS
release 4 (Nahant Update 5)".

After that we encrypted a file as "/usr/bin/gpg --armor --output
$out_file --encrypt -q --yes -r '$gpg_userid' $file".

However, with 1.4.5 we get an encrypted file everything in one line
and gets cut at 80th char.  With 1.2.6 we used to get an encrypted
file in multiple lines with 80 chars per line and was able to see
complete file.

With 1.4.5, how to get it in 80 char format per line?  Right now we
cannot upgrade to beyond 1.4.5 because of consistency issues.

Thank you,
