As a dirty workaroung you could generate a dedicated key without
subkeys with the capabilities set to [SCE] and try this key, which
should work. This will not fix the Issue per se, but should get your
decryption working while you try to solve the main problem. I don't npw
how important the data exchange in your case is.
