Nope, it has a non-zero size:

ls -l ~/.password-store/web/framapad.org.gpg
-rw------- 1 sylvain sylvain *528* juil. 19 15:27

file ~/.password-store/web/framapad.org.gpg
/home/sylvain/.password-store/web/framapad.org.gpg: PGP RSA encrypted
session key - keyid: 5CA808CC 37081464 RSA (Encrypt or Sign) 4096b .

But it is the smallest one, in the folder though.

I was more thinking about some gpg hidden switch to try more to guess
the content.
Though I have recovered the lost password by clicking "I lost my
password" button…

So it's more about hacking file storage than a critical failure.
