This may be the problem.  I don't believe that GnuTLS is currently
capable of dealing with passphrase-locked OpenPGP secret key material.

Could you try generating a test key with GPG (using the same parameters
as your main key), but leave it without a passphrase, and try the
process again?  That would help confirm this theory.

This is exactly what i meant, thanks.  I don't think this is a problem,
but it's good background to have for the issue.
