This server does not synchronize with the rest of the keyservers.
That's a feature, not a bug, as the intent of the server is to
validate your email address, as you noted, and it cannot do that if it
could learn keys from places other than the user. It also signs your
key for you to show that the email address was checked (this can get a
little annoying as it re-signs the key now and then). It's an
excellent server for particular uses. Note in particular that it is
the default server in the commercial PGP product, so if you really
want your key to be found...
