Yes, great, this fixes both bugs, I noticed in my previous mail.

The only problem seems to be in the mutt integration with large key
rings now, because mutt calls 
        gpgm --no-verbose --batch --with-colons --list-keys
without the addressee as parameter and this is quite slow (nearly 2
minutes for a pubring with 2090 keys on a K6/200 processor).

The above command has to become much faster or we have to change mutt
to call it with the addressee as a parameter (at the moment, mutt asks 
for the complete pubring and selects the matching keys itself).
