Same results as on Win7/x64.  *However*... I have some useful
information.  Namely, I mistyped the passphrase and got the output below:

quorra:~ rjh$ gpg -vvvv backup.tar.xz.gpg

gpg: decryption failed: Invalid cipher algorithm

... but when I entered the passphrase correctly, it decrypted correctly.
 I suspect I mistyped the passphrase on Win 7/x64; I'll check that in
the morning.

Still, GnuPG reporting an invalid cipher algorithm when the real problem
is a bad passphrase should still be a bug worth fixing.
