Well... could it be that the key is lacking a self-signature? Normally
you sign your own key, so the user-information is safe. gpg should not
complain about importing public keys otherwise... Also you might want
to look at the --always-trust option or you could edit the key
preferences (gpg --edit-key id) to assign a trust level.
The word computer professionals use when they mean "idiot".
