gnupg - pgp reading signed files

Due to a discussion on sci.crypt I tried pgp 2.6 accept a file signed by
gnupg. This worked, but only when I set the compression to 0 (none).
Doesn't pgp 2.6 use zip compression?
I have in gpg.conf:
gpg --sign --armor file.txt
results in file.txt.asc
pgp 2 can interpret it just fine. I use gnupg 1.4.18 and pgp 2.6.3ia
(compiled myself as 32 bit win32 commandline executable).
If I use another value for compress-algo pgp gives:
ERROR: Nested data has unexpected format. CTB=0x90
