Thanks Henry,

This wasn't exactly what I meant, but it is nice to
finaly see it do something 
it is supposed too. Importing your key worked without
any problem. The temp file 
I was asking for is where the gpgkeys_* helper
programs store their output. Gpg 
creates a temporary file, fills it with parameters and
calls the gpgkeys_* 
program. The helper program reads the parameters from
the temporary inputfile 
and then puts the result in the temporary output file.
Gpg reads the output file 
and extracts the key.
Because my network is a little complicated and nobody
else seems to have the 
problem I have. I decided to write a new version of
gpgkeys_http. This shouldn't 
be very hard, when I know what the exact output should

Oh, I am a C programmer and I'm okay
         I muck with indices and structs all day
And when it works, I shout hoo-ray
         Oh, I am a C programmer and I'm okay
