That looks disturbingly like uninitialized data, but I'm not able to
duplicate it here.
Here is what I'm doing:
$ rm ~/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg
$ gpg --import koch.asc
gpg: /home/dshaw/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: key 57548DCD: public key "Werner Koch (gnupg sig) <dd9jn(at)gnu.org>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1
Can you give exact steps to follow?
