after reading this message, i compiled gpg 1.4.2rc1 and it cleaned out
my extra sigs just like you said, but it didn't get rid of them on the
keyserver.  promptly after cleaning my sigs, i uploaded my key to the
server, then downloaded it from the same server.  the unwanted sigs
still came in.  gpg or pgp or somebody should figure out a way for
people to delete keys or certain parts of them from all the keyservers!
