GPG 2.x uses libgcrypt for crypto operations and this includes keyid
calculations and converting of big integers.  It really would make sense
to check again using the latest stable libgcrypt (1.2.4).  If libgcrypt
has been statically linked, take care that you re-link gpg2 after
installing libgcrypt 1.2.4.
