Hi there everyone,
   It seems I got into an issue with the key for this account.  I've
signed this e-mail, and you'll probably notice it's a bad key.  So, I
want to remove it, and create a new one.  My question is this.  Do I
revoke it first, then delete it?  And, can I do this through the
keymanager in Enigmail, or do I need to use the cmd-line?
    Also, if anyone knows how to actually fix this issue (so I don't
have to remove/recreate) the key, that would be greatly appreciated.
I think what happened (for future reference) is that I had the
password memorized for 120 minutes of idle time.  Then, I decided to
upload my other keys to keyservers (I haven't had a chance to see if
they are bad or not).  So, it tried to put this password in, and
failed.  So, I retried with the correct password, and checked the box
again on the last one.  Then I tried to send an e-mail with this key,
and that's when it started being a "Bad Signature".
    Thanks in advance for any information.
Patrick Dickey.
