I have another idea to try... you have been trying to import the
subkeys into the key that has the primary key... What about importing
the main key (and it's subkeys) into a keyring containing the subkeys?
1.- Make a backup of my keyrings and trustdb.
2.- Export my main key with all it's stuff.
3.- Delete my main key (and subkeys).
4.- Import the subkeys.
5.- Import the main key.
If everything goes well, and you finally have all the stuff together,
6.- Export the mainkey and subkeys.
7.- Restore the backed up secring.gpg, pubring.gpg and trustdb.gpg
8.- Import the whole key (main with all the subkeys).
And in future, I'd try to don't do different edit operations to my
key in different machines... just in case.
