It is due to the new code to check the supplied arguments for valid keys
etc.  It now does a key DB search very early and exhibits existing
problems in a key DB as well as it introduced new bugs.  For example I
was not able to sign the released tarball with that versions w/o using a
workaround.  I nevertheless continued with the release given that this
release was late anyway and I expect that more bugs will show up which
we need to fix in 2.1.11.  Our resources for testing are still limited
and thus we need the help from our fearless users.

One of the problems is the case where an offline primary key is
specified for certain options.  This has meanwhile been fixed in the
repo and I actually wonder that we did not received more complaints.
