I'm currently having problems with --send-key also. --recv-key is OK.
This is using an unchanged copy of 1.0.5 (and also the Debian 1.0.5-1

With --send-key I get the error:
gpg: failed sending to `': status=400
This does not depend on the keyserver I use. 1.0.4 works OK.

Adding a -vvvv I also see:
<HEAD><TITLE>400 Bad Request</TITLE></HEAD><BODY></BODY>

I haven't delved any deeper at the moment.
