Ok, I think I've figured out where I'm confusing myself.  Correct me if
(as usual) I'm wrong, but in this particular case the main key was
created 2003-08-05 and expired on 2003-08-07.  However, there is a
subkey that was created on 2003-08-05 and expires on 2009-03-08?

I've just looked at the key, it looks that way to me, but I'd like
confirmation (for my sanity's sake, if nothing else).

Regards (and excuse the blundering about, I'm a bit new to gpg)...
