Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-02-06 21:16:39 UTC
When I try to filter a long message through gpg-sign, it often hangs (it
hangs for some messages, but not others, but consistently for each
particular message).

If I use the debug-all option, gpg asks me for password and than hangs
after displaying

gpg: DBG: iobuf-5.0: open `[stdin]' fd=0
gpg: DBG: iobuf-6.0: create `file_filter'
gpg: DBG: iobuf-5.0: underflow: req=8192 got=8192 rc=0

 If I run gpg by hands, it continues with

gpg: DBG: iobuf-5.0: underflow: req=8192 got=3878 rc=0
gpg: DBG: iobuf-5.0: underflow: req=8192 got=0 rc=-1
gpg: DBG: iobuf-5.0: underflow: eof
gpg: DBG: armor-filter: control: 5
gpg: DBG: iobuf-6.1: push `armor_filter'
gpg: DBG: armor-filter: control: 5

For some strange reason, the following change fixed the problem:
