Actually, 38,893 keys seem to have this problem (as of today, on
kjsl.com).  A spot check of 0xB4D3D7B0 shows that OKS and cks allow
"duplicate" userids as well.  This key has one uid with a one-byte
size field and a second with a two-byte size field.  Had they both
had one-byte sizes, for example, pks would have merged the signatures
and dropped the second userid packet.

A full list of keys (long keyid, tab, # duplicate uids) is at:

with SHA-1 hash and size:
