Recently, a friend had a problem with a key in his keyring that appeared
to be valid. However he could not find any link between that key and his
only ultimately trusted key. He removed all signatures from that key,
but it still appeared to be valid. After importing the key into PGP i
noticed that there was a photo uid that had the link between the
keys that he could not find.

Okay, maybe i missed something here, but could the problem be that
show-photos was turned off?

are there any good reasons this is turned off by default?


    Causes   --list-keys,  --list-sigs,  --list-public-
    keys, and --list-secret-keys to display  any  photo
    IDs attached to the key.  Defaults to no.  See also
