I don't think that's the problem, gpg is picking the key the OP wants, since it
complains about key 468E35BC having insufficient validity.

Michael, what does --edit-key rconf tell you about key validity?

I don't know what's happening here, it looks to me like you're doing it
correctly and it ought to just work. I tried to reproduce on my Wheezy system
and couldn't reproduce it. But maybe I'm missing some detail.

Do you have any fancy stuff in your gpg.conf? Define "fancy stuff" broadly ;).
Anything you feel comfortable sharing might be useful to mention.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
