Ok, that makes sence... and is comforting that a private key isn't being
exported to the world :).
But what's going on with the extra signature? I'm guessing that PGP is
pulling out a subkey signature and assuming it's for the whole key.
That's fine, I guess, untill the "real" public key is updated from a
keyserver and then duplicate keys appear.
This isn't a functional problem, really, just a cosmetic one but if
there was a --no-signature option for exporting GPG secret keys, that
would make interaction with PGP a bit smoother.
