I had an expired key a number of years ago that I edited with gnupg to extend the 
expiration date, and when I listed the key afterward, *all* the signatures on the 
key were listed as having expired on the original expiration date of my key. 
Was that just a bug in the way gnupg implements its -- list-keys option?
