Display error when user is trying to import SSH keys (instead of crashing)

Reported by steve | August 5th, 2014 @ 12:19 PM | in 1.2b1 (closed)

Reproduce steps:

  1. open GPG Keychain Access
  2. import the "try to import this.pub" file from encrypted attachment


GPG Keychain Access hangs, cpu spikes, laggy, GPG Keychain Access has to be force quit resulting in the attached crash report.


Identify, that user is trying to import an SSH key and show following error message:

"Sorry, but this won't work. You are trying to import a SSH key, which isn't really related to OpenPGP. If you are new to this, please create your own OpenPGP key in GPG Keychain Access by pressing the "New" Icon. If you received this form another person, please ask them for their correct public key."
