Sorry, I checked the mail again and you proceeded correct.

It seems that signing does not work.  It is possible that I never
tested it with the old version.  GnuPG 1.05 and the 1.0.4h snapshot
have the key selection code rewritten from scratch I have really
tested that subkeys are preferred if they are cabable of signing.
You can seen how these versions select a key by using the option
"--debug 64".
