Last night, I requested key 0x3A546EC2 from sks.keyserver.penguin.de.
The armored key blob that the server sent turned out to be key

In short, if I request 0x7EDB7A47, I get 0x7EDB7A47.  If I request
0x3A546EC2, I still get 0x7EDB7A47.  The 0x7EDB7A47 I do get looks
like it has the self-sigs from 0x3A546EC2.

I just tried it again, with the same results from sks.dnsalias.net.
This is likely not a SKS-specific problem, as pgp.mit.edu (running
pksd) does the same thing.
