trust not calculated correct

I have the following problem with GnuPG 1.0:
One of the keys in my pubring seems not to be integrated into the
web-of-trust, which means that the "calculated trust" is set to "q"
instead of "f". Look at this:
$ gpg --edit-key DB089309
pub 1127R/DB089309 created: 1997-03-17 expires: never trust: f/q
(1) Lutz Donnerhacke <firstname.lastname@example.org>
uid Lutz Donnerhacke <email@example.com>
sig! 39F37F5D 1997-03-17 Lutz Donnerhacke <Lutz.Donnerhacke@Jena.
sig! 593238E1 1997-12-10 Thomas Roessler <firstname.lastname@example.org>
sig! DB089309 1997-03-17 [self-signature]
21 signatures not checked due to missing keys
As you can see, DB089309 is signed by two keys (39F37F5D, 593238E1),
which are both fully trusted:
$ gpg --edit-key 39F37F5D
pub 2048R/39F37F5D created: 1996-04-25 expires: never trust: f/f
(1) Lutz Donnerhacke <Lutz.Donnerhacke@Jena.Thur.De>
(2) Lutz Donnerhacke <email@example.com>
$ gpg --edit-key 593238E1
pub 1280R/593238E1 created: 1996-01-19 expires: never trust: f/f
(1) Thomas Roessler <firstname.lastname@example.org>
(2) Thomas Roessler <Thomas.Roessler@Sobolev.Rhein.DE>
So If I don't miss anything, this should imply that the computed trust
of DB089309 should also be "f" instead of "q". I didn't configure
completes-needed, marginals-needed and max-cert-depth, so two fully
trusted signatures should be more than enough to mark the key fully
gpg --update-trustdb and gpg --check-trustdb don't change anything.
gpg --list-trust-path DB089309 doesn't display any path.
I tried the following sequence of commands:
gpg --export-ownertrust > ownertrust.export
mv trustdb.gpg trustdb.gpg.old
gpg --import-ownertrust < ownertrust.export
but this also didn't fix this key (I noted a similar problem with
39F37F5D (see above), and it solved my problems with 39F37F5D, but
with DB089309 it doesn't work).
Any idea what's wrong here?
I use GnuPG 1.0 with rsa and idea modules on a Debian system
