I did what you suggested, but:
$ rm -f private-keys-v1.d/*.key
$ GNUPGHOME=/home/guru/.gnupg-test export GNUPGHOME
gpg2 --import sk_61F1ECB625C9A6C3.gpg
gpg: key 61F1ECB625C9A6C3: no user ID
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: secret keys read: 1
$ ls -l sk_61F1ECB625C9A6C3.gpg
-r-------- 1 guru wheel 1865 May 14 20:29 sk_61F1ECB625C9A6C3.gpg
the file is what was swritte as backup on May 14.
Any idea what I do wrong?
