Thanks David,

Unfortunately I've received the key via email directly from the owner,
so that probably isn't the error. I'll email him to check if it's been
self-signed; I presume it has as the owner is a Linux 'old-fart' ;-)

Anyway, I'm stumped, and am going to put it back in the too hard bin
for the moment.
