(sent to Keyserver?)

I'm only kidding, if this is a test key, you'd be best keeping it off a 
keyserver for now until you've got your expiry dates etc. sorted.

If it's anything like other edit-key options, you need to SELECT the subkey 
first: sub 1 (I think) similar to the uid selection command.

Until it gets to a keyserver, it's easy to change the expiry date back and 
keep playing with the options.
