This one has probably been seen on this list before.  Been through the 
manual and the docs.  I can find what I am looking for but it doesn't 
work with my version of GnuPG 1.2.1.

I'd like to update my subkey so that it never expires.  At the moment 
it looks like this...

pub  1024D/E233C898  created: 2002-08-01 expires: never  trust:f/f
sub  2048g/48F969EB  created: 2002-08-01 expires: 2003-08-01

Can anyone suggest how to do this ?

I've tried 'gpg --edit-key richard@sheflug.co.uk'.  But, when I try to 
change the date on the subkey by selecting the subkey with 'expire' 
gpg just selects the primary key and not the subkey.  If I try 
'expire 2' it still doesn't work.

Any suggestions ?  I don't want to delete the subkey.  I'm afraid that 
I might not be able to put it back again.
