Ticket #56 (defect)

openpgp --decrypt appears to enter a loop if given wrong passphrase
|Reported by:||sion||Assigned to:||sion|
I made a key with a passphrase, and I encrypted a simple test file to that key.
then i use openpgp to try to decrypt it, and deliberately fed it the wrong passphrase.
It appears to enter into an infinite loop, gradually (slowly) increasing the amount of memory it consumes.
specifically, i ran:
openpgp --decrypt --file=test.gpg --homedir=testring --armour
where test.gpg contains an ascii-armored block of encrypted data.
when i supply the correct passphrase, openpgp completes as expected.
