This key is not available from the public keyserver network, so i can't
see what its actual self-signatures look like.  Is it possible that its
only self-sigs were made by an algorithm unsupported by gpg 1.2?

i'm not sure which algorithms were introduced between 1.2 and 1.4, but
that would be useful information for this question.
