You are joking, right?  It is more than unlikely that you will ever
see such a keyid - it is easy to make such a keyid for RSA keys but
not for DSA (or any other algorithms used with packet version 4).  
Please run:

  gpg --list-secret-keys --with-colons --fingerprint

and you should see an additional line starting with "fpr" with the
fingerprint:  The last 8 bytes should be the same as the key ID.
