Why does import refuse to merge a new subkey?

Whenever my subkeys expire and I have to generate a new one, I try to
import the keys on my less secure machines and gpg stupidly refuses to
update the already existing key with the new subkey.  I have to delete
the key, then import to get the new subkey into the keyring.  Why is this?
