I wouldn't have said so either, because as I understand it, you are generating
the key, so it does not have any signatures from others yet.

This is a self-signature, a signature made by the key itself. I'm fairly sure
Johan was talking about signatures from other people.
Perhaps it created a whole bunch of self-signatures?
Could you still send me the overlong key and one that has been "correctly"
generated? I'm curious if we can figure out what it was. That's all it is to me,
a hobby :).
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at <http://digitalbrains.com/2012/openpgp-key-peter>
