Fixed (but a bad hack).  Now that we have validity information for
every uid, I think it makes sense to print all uids and do not merge
the forst one with the "pub" line.  Right or would it break any code?

I could argue, that they are anyway only usable with RSA/IDEA.  But okay,
I see that there is a problem.  Maybe a solution is to allow this only
for RSA keys in v3 packets which do have a "ENCR" in it?  Simply
allowing non self-signed sigs may produce some other problems - please
give me some time to think about it.
