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.
