With 2.1.4:

1. the secret keys do import.
2. each key asks for a passphrase. (2.1.2 did not)
3. It still prints "value not found", but no longer "failed to re
-lookup public key"
4. --decrypt on an encrypted file:
   gpg: decryption failed: No secret key
5. the keys listed with --list-secret-keys are now listed multiple
times.  It's possible that the keys were imported -- incorrectly -- by
2.1.2.  This might cause decrypting to fail.  Time to recover backups.
