Description Adeodato Simó 2004-08-30 00:48:13 UTC
Version:           1.2 (using KDE 3.3.0,  (3.1))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.4 (Debian 1:3.3.4-9)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.8-1-686

This is Debian Bug #251342 [http://bugs.debian.org/251342], reported by  Andrea Borgia <andrea@borgia.bo.it>. In short, the problem is:

- if the user has "fingerprint" in his gpg.conf file, when KGpg passes --fingerprint itself to gpg to obtain the public key fingerprint, it will actually display the fingerprint of the last subkey.

This is because (from the gpg manpage): "If this command is given twice, the fingerprints of all secondary keys are listed too." In the original reporter own words:

> I just discovered the culprit is the "fingerprint" option in the 
> configuration file: kgpg simply grabs the last line containing 
> "fingerprint", instead of the first one! Commenting it out changes the 
> data in the properties window, too!

> I guess kgpg should either be changed to grep the first fingerprint or 
> should sanitize the options passed to gpg.
