While on the subject, I have something I don't quite understand.

I have recently upgraded to testing.  I use mutt.  On stable, a key
would automatically be retrieved, or at least attempted (I'm on
dialup)..  Yesterday, I noted that this wasn't happening with testing -
not sure if this has been the case all along with testing.  I still have
my stable system installed.  I have nothing whatsoever mentioning
auto-key-retrieve on the stable system. I've diffed the corresponding
~/.muttrc's, /etc/Muttrc's and ~/.gnupg/options and cannot find anything
that would account for the different behaviors.

I wonder if there is a difference in the default behavior between the
stable/testing gnupg's or what?  I'm puzzled.
