It's a public key for someone else, imported with --recv-key, because
it's in a trust path I need.

I do have a rather large public key ring (69MB); at times when the trust
path tools have been broken, I wrote a gpg_fetchsigners wrapper which
imports the signers on a key; it's not very good for finding the keys
signed _by_ a key, but there is a degree of correlation and so it's been
adequate to let me get a decent population of trust paths to things I
need (signers of security notices, packages, etc).  I'm tempted to dump
out my public keyring and only re-import those which are on my current
ownertrust list.

So yes, I've seen various broken signatures and hit the mpi bug.
