Please forgive the very poor bug-report.  (I should have been in bed
hours ago, that's my only excuse).

By "broken" I mean that only one of the three imports:

Keys 1-3 of 3 for "...".  Enter number(s), N)ext, or Q)uit > 1 2 3
gpg: key 4D1E900E14C1CC04: 1 duplicate signature removed
gpg: key 4D1E900E14C1CC04: 1 signature reordered
gpg: /root/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: key 4D1E900E14C1CC04: public key "Phil Pennock <...>" imported
gpg: key D231BDA6A79FCEE0: no valid user IDs
gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
gpg: key 081969BAB569CCB2: no valid user IDs
gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
gpg: Total number processed: 3
gpg:           w/o user IDs: 2
gpg:               imported: 1

However, if I instead invoke the command three times, each time
selecting one of the keys, then each imports correctly.  It's only when
I try to import multiple keys at once that GnuPG decides that ... "all
keys but the last one" (?) are missing a self-signature.

There, I hope that's a bit more useful.
