Ok, in this case (David correct me if i am wrong) it look like there was 
something broke in the pubring that was fixed when you ran 
'--update-trustdb' (over an unpatched binary).

Now you haven't any problem. All works fine? I, also, download this key in my 
pubring without problems.

I remark: this ecc patch is _experimental_, use it carefully!
