This script is very useful, but in some cases it don't produce any file as a result.
It's because possible Gtk error messages are appended to the passphrase after exiting the dialog.
As a workaround, you can modify lines 35 and 42 of the script :

35:
pass_decrypt=`zenity --entry --entry-text "$pass_decrypt" --hide-text --title "$pass_msg" --text "$decrypt $file_msg ${file##*/}" "" `
42:
pass_encrypt=`zenity --entry --hide-text --entry-text "$pass_encrypt" --title "$pass_msg" --text "$encrypt $file_msg ${file##*/}" "" `

hope this helps

Sugestions:

- Add a "password confirmation" option
- Work with folders
- Work with multiple selected files. (encrypt them automaticaly without asking passwords again)
- Automaticaly wipe the original files if sucessful

Some of this features are already implemented here: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/EncryptDecrypt+Reloaded?content=105874
but it uses private key, and not password box.
