Sorry to jump in mid thread, but since this issue has popped up I
thought I'd mention a problem I've been having.

$ gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 330C4A75
gpg: requesting key 330C4A75 from hkp server subkeys.pgp.net
gpgkeys: key 330C4A75 not found on keyserver
gpg: invalid radix64 character 2E skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 3A skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 5F skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 2E skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 2E skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 2D skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 3A skipped
gpg: invalid radix64 character 3B skipped
gpg: malformed CRC
gpg: read_block: read error: invalid keyring
gpg: Total number processed: 0
$

The weird thing is, it works for other people. Googling on the radix64
messages seems to indicate something to do with the headers returned
from the server. Why should I be the only one to get this.

Stock gpg from etch.

Any hints.

P.S. Also happens to keys: C02440B8 73CDA455

How does your DNS server resolve subkeys.pgp.net? I see five different
IP addresses, with preference given to either 213.239.206.174 or
64.71.173.107. Try if you still have this problem when you specify one
of these IPs as the keyserver.

I am not sure if "read_block: read error: invalid keyring" indicates a
separate problem with your own public keyring, or a consequence of
corrupted data sent by the keyserver, or a bug in Etch's version of gpg.
You could test if you still get this message when you try to download
the key to a newly-created test keyring:

gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring ./test.gpg --keyserver hkp://subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 330C4A75

Are you running etch?

Weird is this one, all subsequent tries exhibit same error as above.

gpg: requesting key 330C4A75 from hkp server 213.239.212.133

subkeys.pgp.net A 221.133.213.196
subkeys.pgp.net A 64.71.173.107
subkeys.pgp.net A 195.113.19.83
subkeys.pgp.net A 213.239.206.174
subkeys.pgp.net A 213.239.212.133

Any others?

So, 330C4A75 is the only one left which is problematic.

Even from a new user the problem occurs.

Version: 1.4.6-2 for me on etch.
Although, it seems like the problem is not due to gpg itself.
