I encrypted a file (on Mac OSX) some time ago using:
> gpg -ca filename
And then uploaded the outputted file to Google Docs.
Some time later I downloaded the file, and I can't even get gpg to sink its
> gpg filename
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: processing message failed: eof
I'm using the following version to decrypt:
> gpg --version
gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.16

Here's the file's header as viewed with "less" (the starting non-printing
character is suspicious):
<U+FEFF>-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (Darwin)
And here's how the file end:
-----END PGP MESSAGE-----
