Description Sachin Prabhu 2007-04-30 13:43:46 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #234087 +++

Description of problem:
When decrypting multiple GPG encrypted files with --multifile --decrypt (or
--decrypt-files), I get "gpg: WARNING: multiple plaintexts seen" warnings for
all but the first file in the list.  Furthermore, decryption fails with the
message "gpg: handle plaintext failed: unexpected data" on all but the first
file unless I give it the --allow-multiple-messages option.  But even then, I
still get the warning messages.  

All files in the list have been encrypted with gnupg, verified with 'file' as
"GPG encrypted data", and are not plain text.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.7

How reproducible:
Completely reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a subdir with several files.
2. Encrypt all files in the subdir with gnupg; remove originals
3. Attept to decrypt all files at once with 'gpg --multifile --decrypt *'
Actual results:
Only the first file in the shell expansion list of '*' gets decrypted.  The rest
generate the warning message "gpg: WARNING: multiple plaintexts seen" ans well
as a line indicating that decryption failed.  Using --allow-multiple-messages
will cause the files to be decrypted, but the warning message persists.

Expected results:
All files decrypted successfully with no warnings or errors.

Regression noticed after upgrading from 'gnupg-1.2.6-8'to 'gnupg-1.2.6-9".

This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.  

Since no regressions are allowed between releases, 
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.  

Please resolve ASAP.

Comment 10 Subhendu Ghosh 2010-09-08 03:56:50 UTC
The issue is cosmetic: decryption works with the --allow-multiple-messages

Closing bug.
