i've been happily using GnuPG for many years now and have had nothing
but good things to say about it. kudos to everyone who developed it.
now that gentoo has upgraded to 2.0.x, i'm having some problems with my
existing key rings. for example
$ gpg --refresh-keys
an mpi of size 0 is not allowed
gpg: keyring_get_keyblock: read error: Invalid packet
gpg: error reading keyblock: Invalid keyring
gpg: keyserver refresh failed: Invalid keyring
this still happens with the latest version supported by gentoo:
$ gpg --version
gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.9

the keyring is complex (main secret key removed, email signing subkey
retained) but 1.4.x coped fine with it
