Playing around with key generation there was something banging around in
the back of my mind and it finally hit me:

Possible actions for a RSA key: Sign Certify Encrypt Authenticate
Current allowed actions: Sign Certify Authenticate

   (S) Toggle the sign capability
   (E) Toggle the encrypt capability
   (A) Toggle the authenticate capability
   (Q) Finished

You selected this USER-ID:
    "Douglas Barton <dougb at dougbarton.us>"

Change (N)ame, (C)omment, (E)mail or (O)kay/(Q)uit? o

The Q option behaves inconsistently between these two menus. In the
capabilities menu it means "we're done, and all is well;" in the uid
section O ("oh") means Ok, but Q bails out of the whole key generation

The easiest way to fix this would probably be to change the capabilities
menu since that's an --expert option.
