Recreated how?  Can you give exactly the steps you followed?  Even  
better, can you generate a key using those steps and send it here so  
we can examine it?

The error message that you got looks like it came from the PGP command  
line product.  I actually have a copy of that here somewhere, and I'm  
happy to check your GPG-generated key against it.
