Thanks, I had to invoke

$ LC_ALL=C gpg2 --edit-key 0x46925553

to switch gpg's output to English. Everything all right here, though. I
thought it might refer to the key 0x46925553 being revoked by 0x46925553
(Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key, mentioned in the last line, which
in fact is the uid) but I didn't pay attention to the fact that it
actually refers to the enryption subkey. 

Gnupg-users and developers, Debian people, I beg your pardon.
