Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-02-20 20:44:21 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #182029 +++
[Note: this affects 1.4.2 in the development tree as well, hence the clone.]

Description of problem:

After update to 1.4.2.1 my keyrings becomes unusable; now I get

| $ LANG=C gpg --update-trustdb
| gpg: mpi larger than indicated length (2 bytes)
| gpg: keyring_get_keyblock: read error: invalid packet
| gpg: keyring_get_keyblock failed: invalid keyring
| gpg: failed to rebuild keyring cache: invalid keyring
| gpg: buffer shorter than subpacket
| gpg: buffer shorter than subpacket
| gpg: signature packet without keyid
| gpg: buffer shorter than subpacket
| gpg: mpi larger than indicated length (2 bytes)
| gpg: keyring_get_keyblock: read error: invalid packet
| gpg: keyring_get_keyblock failed: invalid keyring
| gpg: failed to rebuild keyring cache: invalid keyring
| gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model
| gpg: mpi larger than indicated length (2 bytes)
| gpg: keyring_get_keyblock: read error: invalid packet
| gpg: keydb_get_keyblock failed: invalid keyring
| gpg: validate_key_list failed

Downgrading to 1.4.1 makes it work again. This issue (inclusive patch)
