But this is precisely what happens: They are shown (as usable) when gnupg parses the key (without importing it). Example: (Gnupg 1.0.6)=20 aasmunds$bz <~> gpg --export aasmunds | gpg --homedir nob gpg: Warning: using insecure memory! gpg: Warning: using insecure memory! gpg: nob/secring.gpg: keyring created gpg: nob/pubring.gpg: keyring created pub 1024D/54B975CE 2000-02-29 =C5smund Skj=E6veland <aasmunds@copyleft.no> uid =C5smund Skj=E6veland <aasmunds@student.matn= at.uio.no> uid =C5smund Skj=E6veland <aasmunds@e.fix.no> uid =C5smund Skj=E6veland <aasmunds@bzzzt.fix.no> uid =C5smund Skj=E6veland <a@b.cl> uid =C5smund Skj=E6veland <as@cl.no> sub 1024g/5132B6E4 2000-02-29=20 But, if you look in my previous message, you will see that the fourth and fifth userids are revoked.=20 --=20 =C5smund Skj=E6veland (aasmunds@student.matnat.uio.no) (OpenPGP keyid 54B97= 5CE) --FFoLq8A0u+X9iRU8 Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (FreeBSD) Comment: For info see http://www.gnupg.org iEYEARECAAYFAjul7f4ACgkQKeJUaVS5dc50nACeN1UKbvw1jDu5cpuUw1JZl2h7 b/AAoMHLb2nfthXjg1czk15UK7uz8ajm =V603 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --FFoLq8A0u+X9iRU8--
