The whole story behind the dot after the user ID is to tell you which
user ID GnuPG thinks is the primary one.  OpenPGP has no clear
definition on what a primary user ID is and actually there is no need for
it.  The changes introduced with gnupg 1.0.5 are that gpg has now a
well-defined behaviour on which user ID to display as the first one.
I have checked with the NAI folks so that we use the same algorithm to
determine the user ID displayed first.

I am sorry, that there is no way to change it yet.
