Tails OpenPGP Applet hangs on large text
When trying to decrypt large text using gpgApplet, the applet becomes unresponsive:
- Encrypt a large piece of text:
hexdump /bin/bash | gpg --armor --encrypt
- Copy to the clipboard.
- Decrypt using gpgApplet.
The applet starts a GnuPG command (
gpg --batch --no-tty --armor --decrypt) but does not terminate even after 45 minutes. Meanwhile,
clicking on the gpgApplet does nothing.
Decrypting such text on the command line is almost instantaneous.
