So, if i have my public key, and the stub is missing, all i have to do
is load the card with --card-edit? and im back to normal?

One thing that confuses me is the "list" output from the card:

pub  1024R/B4EEB7CA 2007-01-25 Jorgen Christiansen Lysdal

                      card-no: 0001 00000A7A

                      card-no: 0001 00000A7A

It stores the public part of my masterkey but not the subkey?
