Original my PATTERN was the key-ID in short form. I tried it with
  gpg --search-keys PATTERN
that works but gpg2 didn't work. So I also tried using the long id, that 
works with gpg and gpg2 but doesn't work with gpgme, too.
I also wonder about how fast he gives out the EOF-error, he seams not to 
connect to the server.

I'm not familiar with tracing and I also haven't found anything in the 
manual for now.

Thanks for help.
