That´s exactly what I did to see what I have in my key, and the key 
flags won´t be removed no matter what I do.
I also added "tty_printf(_("do_add_key_flags was called.\n"));"
at the begin of the function (the only command in the function at all). 
I see this message only during the creation of a new key (two times), 
but never when I edit one.
