And that's the point: For some (strange...) reason it is impossible in 
1.4.x and 2.0.x to import secret key parts if there are already secret 
key parts.

You can combine those files to a single file though and import them at 
once. You need binary files (without --armor) and the command gpgsplit 
for that. Then you just combine the needed parts with cat to a ned file 
and import that.
