GPG revocations & PGP

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
i have some difficulties with GPG revocations.
I have created a revocation for a test key with "gpg -o file
- --gen-revoke key-id" but it is not possible to import this revocation
with PGP 6.5.8.
PGP warns me, that "The keyring file is corrupt".
And the keyserver (pgp5.ai.mit.edu) tells me:
"Key block in add request contained no new
keys, userid's, or signatures.
Your key block contained 1 format errors,
which were treated as if the erroneous elements
hadn't been part of your submission.
The last error was on key 0x00000000:
Key block corrupt: signature without key"
So i have to export the GPG key, re-import it with PGP to create a
revocation, which is accepted by PGP and keyservers?
Wouldn't it be better to have a revocation scheme, which is compliant
to PGP and all the PGP keyservers?
Or do i a mistake? ;-)
