Huh.  Fairly new key, too (I have keys reaching back to PGP 2.1...).

Sorry, I'm new around here, how do I do that?  I looked around a bit, 
but couldn't find an RC tarball.  I assume I should check out tag 
RC-1-2-5rc1?  I speak fairly fluent CVS, and found advice at 
www.gnupg.org on fetching the sources via anoncvs, but I get server 
connection refusals (which, I suppose, might mean "too busy," or 
"temporary server problems," or might mean "I need to negotiate with 
someone to add my from-host to an access list"):
