I'm using 1.0.6 and it doesn't appear that this command is available:

Command> uid 1

pub  1024D/22425813  created: 2001-06-30 expires: never      trust: f/u
sub  1024g/2806A9F1  created: 2001-06-30 expires: never
(1)* Peter Lavender <plaven@bigpond.net.au>
(2)  Peter Lavender <plaven@ozemail.com.au>
(3). Peter Lavender (Work) <peter.lavender@maxware.com>

Command> primary

Invalid command  (try "help")

Or have I got it wrong.
