I've bumped into a rather odd problem while revoking a couple of userids.
I tested if the revocations were in circulations, and I noticed that I
couldn't use the keyserver to transport the
uid/self-signature revocations from my current keyring to a backup copy of=
it. The revocations were transferred when I used manual export and import.
However, the keyserver (which I haven't sent the
revocations to; it must have synchronised against does
distribute the revoked uids.=20
It appears that simply silently ignores revoked uids: It
distributes neither revocations nor signatures for them.

I can't see that I'm doing anything wrong. I use the same command on two
different keyservers and get different results.

Is broken?
