host not found: ec=11001

Dear All,

I'm using the following config file:

keyserver hkp://
keyserver-options honor-http-proxy,verbose,auto-key-retrieve

And http_proxy is as follows:


 From the command line I use:

gpg --verify gnupg-1.4.0.tar.bz2.sig

Which returns:

gpg: Signature made 12/16/04 11:50:52  using DSA key ID 57548DCD
gpg: requesting key 57548DCD from hkp://
gpg: MyUserName: host not found: ec=11001
gpg: can't get key from keyserver: No such file or directory
gpg: Total number processed: 0
gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found

It looks as if 'MyUserName' as embedded in the keyserver URL is 
wrongfully assumed to be the host. I am currently using version 1.2.5 of 
gpg. Is this a bug or am I overlooking something?
