You're getting Bad signature because gpg can't find the key. And it can't find
it because the keyserver helper program is being blocked at your proxy server.
In addition to auto-key-retrieve, try specifying http-proxy[=value] as part of
the keyserver-options line in gpg.conf.
From the gpg man page:
For HTTP-like keyserver schemes that (such as HKP
and HTTP itself), try to access the keyserver over
a proxy. If a value is specified, use this as the
HTTP proxy. If no value is specified, the value of
the environment variable "http_proxy", if any, will
If that doesn't work, you may either
a) ask the Net-gods to open the keyserver port, 11371. Or,
b) try to locate a keyserver operation on port 80.
