Just guessing...

the upgrade from gpg 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 changed how trust is handled.
Previously all keys with available secret keys were automatically
trusted. Now, you have to set that trust manually (gpg --edit - I think
gpa and the like may not know about 'ultimate' trust yet).

Perhaps it's how kmail handles gpg, too - don't know about that.
