My guess is that you are being bitten by the following bug which has=20
been fixed in GnuPG 1.2.3 (which will hopefully be released very soon):
* Listing keys is much faster again.
Simply compare the time that 'gpg --list-keys --with-colon' takes with=20
1.2.1 and with 1.2.2.
Since GnuPG 1.2.3rc1 has a bug which makes it impossible to fetch keys=20
from any keyserver (which has already been fixed in cvs) you should=20
continue to use GnuPG 1.2.1 until 1.2.3 is released.
