Not really. But GnuPG currently can't update a secret key; so it listens
the first time you tell it to import, which gets you one subkey. All
subsequent times, it doesn't change what it already has.

It would work if you did this with just the public key (I think).



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 <>
