Default debmirror on Ubuntu 8.04 fails to mirror debian archives

Pls CC me if you remember, by "reply-all", as I am not subscribed.

Here are the simple steps to reproduce my problem (on Ubuntu 8.04).

The commands to run, which clearly identify the problem for me, are as
follows (please note, the repo fails to download, so don't worry about
chewing bandwidth); as root (in ubuntu 8.04 I am):

# become root:
sudo su -

# do test in temp location:
mkdir $target
cd $target

# import the supposedly required key:
export GNUPGHOME=$target
touch trustedkeys.gpg
key=55BE302B # <<<--- HERE IT IS, the required key
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys $key
apt-key export $key | gpg --keyring trustedkeys.gpg --import -

# try mirroring (part of) some debian archive:
/usr/bin/debmirror --nocleanup --exclude-deb-section=games --verbose
--progress --arch=amd64 --section=main --dist=squeeze
--host=ftp.iinet.net.au --method=http --root=pub/debian/debian

And this last command above produces the following output for me:

Mirroring to /tmp/debmirrortmp/target-dir from
Arches: amd64
Dists: squeeze
Sections: main
Including source.
Will NOT clean up.
Pdiff mode: use.
Attempting to get lock, this might take 2 minutes before it fails.
Get Release files.

As you can see from the output, the key 55BE302B is still resulting in
"public key not found".
