Thanks for the file.  Actually it would have been possible to create an
expired key and try to access if by fingerprint.  But with your support
it was just a few minutes with gdb.

Pretty straight bug resulting from not flushing a cache as needed.
Commit 328a6b6 fixes this.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
