gpg behaves exactly as upstream described it in the manpage. Options
come before commands and any parsing stops after a non-option. This is
IMO not unusual. I'm in favor of closing this report and I'd suggest you
discuss this on the gnupg mailing lists, if you want to have this design
decision changed.
