tried this again,
same result as before,

then generated a new dh/dsa key
and a new rsa subkey

and tried it with the new key,

and it worked,
with the same result that you got,

only for new or recent keys,

the key i originally wrote in about,
is an older (but still v4) rsa key and rsa signing subkey
and i couldn't get it to cross-certify

can others try this out on any older PGP-generated keys they might 
and see if it works or not,
