Just to make sure I understand the problem. Given a key with more
than one uid, one of which is marked primary, if I do this:
gpg --fixed-list-mode --with-fingerprint --with-colons --list-keys (thekey)
over and over, sometimes the primary key is not first?
Is the primary uid marked primary (i.e. a primary subpacket is in the
self-sig), or is the primary just the newest uid ?
