gpa: can't encrypt with multple keys
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
gpa, like all the pgp tools, gives the possible to encypt a file for
multiple user, i.e. it can encrypt using multiple public keys.
Unfortunately this does not seem to work properly, since when trying more
than one key, it hangs with 99% CPU usage
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Import (or create, I guess) more than one public key.
Go to file manager and try to encrypt a file using 2 or 3 keys.
gpa runs at 99% of CPU, but it does not seem to produce anything usable.
It should proceed and encrypt the file for multiple users/keys.
gpa 0.7.3 under cygwin on a win32 machine has the same problem, so this
seems also to be a bug fo gpa developers.
I report it here also for reference (but I will not report to gpa people).
Confirmed. Still a problem in 0.7.3. Works when encrypting with 1 key.
upstream moved bug to
and has reportedly been fixed in svn.
Anxiously awaiting new release.
