GnuPG doesn't accept user IDs which are not self signed (it's easy to
add a faked a user ID to a key, but it's impossible to self-sign it).
That's why the following user IDs are not accepted by GnuPG:

                              Joey Hess <joey@kite.ml.org>
Unt       82DD0E65             Dale Scheetz <dwarf@polaris.net>
Unt       3EE7EDCD             Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org>
Unt       23D678A9             Igor Grobman <igor@igoria.net>

                              Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>
Unt       ED9547ED             Wichert Akkerman <wakkerma@debian.org>
Unt       487D4601             Darren Benham <gecko@debian.org>
Unt       E2A09309             Randolph Chung <tausq@debian.org>

jeh22@cornell.edu is available in GnuPG (the first user ID).

Sign the user IDs yourself first, than you GnuPG will accept them.
