Right, this is a regression.  The reason is that now the dirmngr daemon
takes care of keyservers and it handles keyserver pools internally: A
host name is expected which is resolved to check whether there are
several AAAA or A records decribing a pool of servers.  Then one of the
AAAA or A records are selected and that server is tried.

It seems that I did not implemented the case of a plain IP address
without considering a pool.  Tracking in

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
