Odd key

Hi folks!

For some reason, 0x6FFC5075 will not import to my keyring. (It is on all
the public servers... it is an RSA key, self-signed.

rabbi@thetis:/usr/home/rabbi$ gpg --recv-keys 0x6FFC5075
gpg: requesting key 6FFC5075 from horowitz.surfnet.nl ...
gpg: public key is 7999 seconds newer than the signature
gpg: key 6FFC5075: invalid self-signature
gpg: key 6FFC5075: no valid user IDs
gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:           w/o user IDs: 1

Aparently GnuPG does a sanity check, and noticed that the date stamp for
one of the keys is off.

Anyway around this? If the owner revokes the one sig and resigns the key,
is that a valid fix?

Or is there a way to force it onto the ring? 

The date creation for the key and the sig are both 7/29/98, according to
the info I get when I view the key properties in PGP (which imports the
key fine).

Clues would be appreciated.
