And while we're at it *eg*: Henning Heinold <> (1024G/AAD2710D) signed my key a while ago, using an older version of GnuPG and now GnuPG (and pgp <something>) whine when importing my key:
| gpg: sig 94C09C7F.59/69[5]/AAD2710D: Invalid certificate: bad signature
| gpg: sig 94C09C7F.59/69[0]/AAD2710D: Invalid certificate: bad signature
[..] with pgp:=20 } With key 0x94C09C7F on it, I received five errors ("An error has } occurred: bad parameter") every time PGP Freeware 6.5.2 read my } keyring. I isolated this to the signature from key 0xAAD2710D. [..] Is there any way to get this signature repaired (for example by signing it again or revoking the signature on the key), or am I just doomed to live with this forever?
