There ought to be a cap on the number of times the user may enter
an invalid passphrase :)  Add to this the fact that netpgp cannot
be aborted with ^C or ^Z...
Try to decrypt something, decide you don't want to do this just now, feel the 
need to switch to another terminal to 'killall netpgp' :)
Apply the patch at:

(and yes, I'm aware that with this patch, netpgp --decrypt foo.txt.gpg with 
three wrong passphrase tries will generate an empty foo.txt; still trying to 
track this down)
