You are completely right. I just tested on Debian stable with gpg 1.4.12
and 2.0.19 and it Just Works(tm). I can have multiple secret keyrings.

Maybe it was some old version, or maybe I'm just thinking of something else.



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