Copying of pubring/secring

A new day a new distro installation! :)

Did a fresh ftp installation of Debian Woody including GnuPG.
On the same harddisk is my Mandrake installation with installed GnuPG 
and my user's ~/.gnupg including pubring/secring.

I tried to copy the keyrings to the new ~/.gnupg in the Debian 
installation but asking 'gpg --list-keys' I am told that

gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=00)
gpg: read_keyblock: read error: Invalid packet
gpg: enum_keyblocks(read) failed: Invalid keyring

Hmm, username is the same as in the old installation where I copied the 
rings from.

Anybody can help or point me to a doc to solve this?
