can't import key through stdin

My problem: gpg is unable to import keys from stdin:

~$cat test.txt | gpg --import
gpg: Total number processed: 0

It works fine when given a filename:

~$gpg --import test.txt 
gpg: key 88C1BFB7: public key imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1

but since this script will be used in a CGI environment,
I really rather not have to write a temp file.

Anyone run into this, or hopefully run into it and solve it?

Thanks in advance:
