Hi, Grant. Thanks for replying. I'd tried that method, but it didn't work.
However, I think I may have found the solution at last. My latest googling
trip came up with a suggestion to try 'gpg --rebuild-keydb-caches', and I do
believe that the new keys are all showing now. It went on to say that the
command should be put into the startup file for gnupg - it was talking about
an older version, so it may not be relevant to newer ones, but I think it's
worth a try. I'm going to do that now.
