KMail error: Could not decrypt the data

Hi!

4.13.0 is in test.
I receive pgp-signed messages which are just pgp-encoded rather pgp-encrypted. So, it is sufficient just to

Code: Select all
gpg -d file.txt


to decode a pgp block. Here file.txt is

Code: Select all
-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----
Version: PGP 6.5.8

owFlkDtIA0EQho+gggcHiogiIoOg2OTcu5hLvEoE7SMIErDw0Qgq2Njb2WhjKYiN
...
mbjcpP8B
=dv5G
-----END PGP MESSAGE-----

At case you haven't sender public key, you get just a warning, but decoding still takes place (I have tried it on the another Linux box).
For such incoming messages I have green-decorated error:
Code: Select all
Message was signed by someone@somewhere (Key ID: 0x-----).
The signature is valid and the key is fully trusted.   Hide Details
<div style="font-size:x-large; text-align:center;padding:20pt;">Could not decrypt the data.</div>
End of signed message

How to resolve?
P.S. At the moment I use Thunderbird to receive these messages.
