Hm, not sure about that error, but you can probably work around it by
doing something like

find /my/path/ -name "*.asc" -exec gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring
/home/sascha/gpg-skript/auto-gpg-keyring.gpg --options /dev/null
--no-secmem-warning --charset utf-8 --import {} \;

That way, gpg is called for each .asc file separately. Might be
slower, I don't know.
