You are right, now that I am doing ascii armor it seems to input just
fine.  But for some reason I can't decrypt the data.  The data inserted
into the database looks like:

-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.2.1 (GNU/Linux)

*jarble*

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

When I try and decrypt that I get the message:
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: decrypt_message failed: eof

I tried creating that string and immediatly passing it back through gpg
and it decrypts it just fine.  But wont if I put it into the database first.
