gpg can retrieve only ascii keys from http?

$ LANG= gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0x985A444B
gpg: requesting key 985A444B from http server
gpgkeys: key 985A444B not found on keyserver
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0

I can get this key with wget.

For example:

$ LANG= gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0x84F8C181
gpg: requesting key 84F8C181 from http server
gpg: key 84F8C181: "Kent <lazy_kent land ru>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:              unchanged: 1

$ LANG= gpg --version
gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.2-cvs
