Can not encrypt or decrypt large files with GPA:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

After searching the mailing lists with several keywords, I found no
reference to this problem.
If this is not the correct place to ask, please let me know and
point me in the right direction.

>From the command line, I can encrypt or decrypt files with my 4096-
bit RSA key of 6GB or more with no problem (other than painfully
slow).

If I use Seahorse as a right click from Nautilus, I can encrypt
files of any size.
Though Seahorse has a bit of a bug in that it gives the files a pgp
extension and the right click only recognizes files with a gpg
extention for decryption.

Other than the Seahorse extention bug, gpg is working.

With the GPA GUI, if I attempt to decrypt or encrypt a file of say
3GB+, I get a GPA error box
that simply says: /path/filename.gpg: File too large

Is there a work around for this? Do I have something mangled?

What version of GPA are you using?

thanks for your report!
Can you give us the precise version
of GPA you have this problem with and
the operating system?

(This will shorten the time for the (mostly volunteer) developers
to reproduce the problem.)

Best is to open an issue in the problem tracker for GPA
for this
http://wald.intevation.org/tracker/?group_id=13

(This will make sure the point is not forgotten.)

Greetings!

Linux OS, CentOS 5
The version of GPA I am using came from the Dag repository and the
file is:
gpa-0.7.0-1.2.el5.rf.i386.rpm
(Dag runs a little behind on versions...)
The gpgme also came from the Dag repo and is:
gpgme-1.0.3-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
Since I did not make the rpm or build it from source, I have no
idea what options, if any, were used for compile.

Since this might have been corrected in a more recent version,
should I still file a bug report, or does anyone know if this is
still an issue in 0.7.6?

Many thanks!
