Hi, all --

When I opened a message a moment ago gpg automatically downloaded the
key, just as expected, but I got an interesting error in my gpg output:

I imagine that Michael has a subkey on his key and wouldn't be surprised
to see the keyserver puke on it, from what I've heard, but this message
gives the impression that gnupg is unhappy with it.  If that's the case,
why should that be?
