GPG subkeys and keyservers



My gpg encryption subkey expired recently; I created a new subkey; it's
signed, expires in a few months, etc.  The key imports fine when I pull
it in from the ascii armored export version ... but exporting it to the
keyserver via --send-key fails miserably.  I get a report of success,
but when I --recv-key, I don't get the new subkey.



(below:  my public/private keypair resides on "meteu".  "fury" is another 
host, which does not have either key.)

New subkey exists, supposedly got exported to wwwkeys.us.pgp.net
alright.  However.

Key is imported just fine from the ascii armored export.  No problems.

Apparently, the version of the key up on the PGP server doesn't have the
new subkey.  So, what am I missing?

Nice, selfless people don't restore my faith in humanity -- they restore
my faith in randomness.
