I understand the bug in that way, that I got a private key which I'm not fully
trusting. Maybe because someone else stole a copy of that private key. Or it's
a private key I share with some people because we all get forwarded mails from
an alias address. Nevertheless KMail shouldn't deny to use the key but give a
clear warning.

Did some testing. (By the way: patch for bug #328311 doesn't fixes this bug)

KDE 4.11.4 (openSUSE 13.1)

When changing a OpenPGP key for a KMail identity
Settings => Configure KMail => Identities => Modify => Cryptography => Change
I can manually select a key for which I set the trust-level to anything less
then "Ultimately" (using Kgpg) for signing but I CAN'T select it for

Same problem when changing the "Your keys" in the last step before sending an
encrypted E-Mail (dialog "Encryption Key Approval").

If I set a full-trusted key as default for a KMail identity (Settings =>
Configure KMail) and afterwards lower the trust-level KMail gives me this
message when trying to send a mail with that identity:

"You have requested to encrypt this message, and to encrypt a copy to yourself,
but no valid trusted encryption keys have been configured for this identity."
Only choices:
"Send unencrypted" "Cancel"

Can't manually select a key in the "Encryption Key Selection" dialog which run
over it's date of validity. (created a key for testing by running a vm in Qemu
and set the time a few years back)

This is important! If someone forgot to create a new key or to send me a new
key I should be able so send him an encrypted email asking for that!
