fetch yields "rejected by import filter"

I'm having problems importing and thereafter using keys on another pc.
This is kinda annoying since it interfers with using cards smoothly on
different computers.

I have the privkey on a card, use the admin/fetch command to get the
pubkey down and therafter use the card-status to generate the stubs,
The thing is that when I enter 'fetch' I get error messages:
gpg: key xxxx: rejected by import filter

The URL on key, 'URL of public key' is indeed korrekt and I can easily put
it in a browser and see the pubkey.

So what is the problem? I noticed there are quite a few hits of "rejected
by import filter" when googling.

I have seen this issue several times before trying to use/test different
cards on both Win and Linux.

There seem to exist options relating to this:

--import-filter name=expr
--export-filter name=expr

but should I need to use these in config file to make these card commands
to work?

Right now I'm on: gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.30 (Gpg4win 2.3.3)
Card (in this particular case) 2.0 and keys 3072 bits.
Reader SCR335 seem not to have any issues.

What am I missing?
