Thanks for the response (though no need to cc me).
However, having downloaded various keys, I can manually find a path with
only 2 intermediate hops.
The pathfinder at http://pgp.cs.uu.nl/ doesn't have Florian Weimer's

The bit that puzzles me is that despite me having all 4 keys, gpg
doesn't find a path.
Unless it's the bit about 'trusted' signatures? Perhaps one of those
