Mailvelope [OpenPGP.js] key size vs. GnuPG

I created a key using Mailvelope (the key I intended to use did not work  
with Mailvelope) and I noticed that GnuPG shows rsa2048 for the [SC]  
primary key and rsa2047 for the [E] subkey. Mailvelope shows 2048 bits for  
both keys.

My guess is that Mailvelope generates the keys and shows the key  
properties incorrectly.

My question to the list is: Are there known side effects from using such a  
key? (Besides the fact that it is not what I expected it to be.)
