Dear all,

    I have got into trouble.  Here is my key now:

    One of my UID is missing in the secret key ring.  I was editing my
keys, revoking UIDs with non-UTF8 comment and adding UTF-8 UIDs.  Maybe
it's lost during some export/import.

    The missing 2nd UID is my company e-mail.  I can't sign my mails
without it at my office.  This is really strange.  What can I do about
it?  Do I have to revoke my office UID and create new again? :(  I'd
just wrote several mails to my frieds to sign my new UIDs, and I have to
revoke it now?  That's not reasonable.  I can't find a way to manage my
secret key UIDs.  Why can public key UIDs not matching secret key UIDs?
Is there any way I can synchronize my public key UID with my secret key
UID, or simply help me add that missing one?

    Thank you for your time and patience.
