Hi, all.  I'm a new user of GnuPG.

Forgive me if the reasoning for this seems trivial, but this behavior=20
surprised me enough to mail you:

I had an aquaintence ``sign my key'' and I '--import'ed the key he
mailed back to me. =20

Since the time I delivered my key to him, I deleted the UID and created=20
another with a comment in it. =20

The import noted the addition of a UID and a signature, and when I=20
list my signatures, I note that his signature is attached to the one=20
I previously removed.

It seems that if I remove the UID, the signature is removed.  I'm=20

What happens if you change ISPs or names?  Must one get all signers of
your UID to resign the new UID? =20

Feature or bug?

Please CC reply to me, as I'm not certain my list-subscribe was
accepted (no confirmation).
