I've configured debugging for dirmngr in dirmngr.conf as follows:

debug-level guru

dirmngr is running with its homedir set to the directory containing
that conf file.

If I should be doing something different to get more debugging info
out of dirmngr, please clarify. At the moment, the only information I
seem to be getting is:

gpg: DBG: chan_4 <- ERR 167772346 No keyserver available <Dirmngr>

Which doesn't really tell me much, and I cannot figure out where in
the source code this is happening.
