Sometimes a valid PGP-signed message with a big attachment fails to decrypt and to show up correctly.

Upstream bug ticket (closed):
Supposed fix:

Backporting the commit would be deeply appreciated.

Additional info:

evolution 3.30.4-1
evolution-data-server 3.30.4-1
gnupg 2.2.12-1

Steps to reproduce:

In a message list click a PGP-encrypted email message that has a big attachment. Sometimes the message fails to show correctly, the error is shown on top: "Error verifying signature: Cannot verify message signature: Incorrect message format", sometimes the same message is displayed w/o any issue.

For reproduction you can send a PGP-encrypted message to yourself with a 1+ MB attachment.
This task depends upon

I've applied the upstream patch, rebuilt and tested evolution and can confirm that the patch fixes the issue.
