Nice idea.

Your shell script doesn't seem to have a terminating condition, except
for errors.  The $IMPORT_FINISHED file is never created, as far as I
can tell.  This is confirmed by running it, it just loops forever.
Using the development branch, I don't get any errors from the script.
Perhaps the problem is fixed in the development branch?

Did you build gpg yourself, or used someone else's build?  Perhaps
there is something wrong with the build.
