2011-01-11 I added a new encryption key to my gpg p ...
I added a new encryption key to my gpg public key 0xF0D7C263, 4096 bits size. Which means I want the 'lesser' (2048 bit) key to not be used anymore by people encrypting stuff to send to me. So I try to set an expiry for this subkey. But strangely this change does not 'stick' :
Command> key 1

pub  1024D/F0D7C263  created: 1998-12-17  expires: never       usage: SCA 
                     trust: full          validity: full

[ revoked] (3)  Koos van den Hout <koos   pizza.hvu.nl>
[ revoked] (4)  Koos van den Hout <koos   wu-ftpd.org>

Command> expire
Changing expiration time for a subkey.

Key is valid for? (0) 6m
Key expires at Sun 10 Jul 2011 10:30:34 PM CEST
Is this correct? (y/N) y

You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "Koos van den Hout <koos   kzdoos.xs4all.nl>

Strange. Seems the working solution will be to revoke the subkey. Which I'd rather not do because I want to be able to keep decoding old mails.
