From: Eric Hanchrow
Subject: bug#1471: 23.0.60; Visiting GnuPG-encrypted file yields "file exists, but cannot be read"
Date: Tue, 02 Dec 2008 08:48:54 -0800
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

At the shell:

  $ cd /usr/local/src/emacs-via-git/src/

create a tiny encrypted file.

  $ echo Fee fi fo fum | gpg --symmetric > decrypt-me.gpg
  gpg: gpg-agent is not available in this session

You can't see it in this transcript, but I typed a very short passphrase: "foo"

Proof that the file is indeed encrypted:

  $ cat decrypt-me.gpg 
  Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)

  -----END PGP MESSAGE-----

Proof that I haven't forgotten the passphrase:

  $ gpg --decrypt < decrypt-me.gpg 
  gpg: CAST5 encrypted data
  gpg: gpg-agent is not available in this session
  Enter passphrase:                   gpg: encrypted with 1 passphrase
  Fee fi fo fum
  gpg: WARNING: message was not integrity protected

Now let's visit the file in emacs:
  $ ./emacs -Q -nw

I then typed C-x C-f decrypt-me.gpg RET.  Emacs prompted me for the
passphrase for symmetric encryption, as I'd expect.  I entered it, and
then instead of seeing "Fee fi fo fum" in the buffer, as I'd expected, I
saw an error in the echo area: "File exists, but cannot be read".

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/src/emacs-via-git/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
