Please run 
  gpg --list-packets yourkeyring.pkr

It should bail out at the same packet but you get a listing of all
packets and by comparing it to a listing of an uncorrupted keyring you
should be able to figure out.  It might also be worth to use the
option "--debug 1"

It does.  However sharing the keyring won't anymore work with
forthcoming GnuPH versions.
