Bug#549557: seahorse: ignores the "Automatically retrieve keys from key servers" option

Package: seahorse
Version: 2.22.3-2
Severity: normal

On a fresh lenny installation, I've set up GPG using seahorse by
importing my ascii armored private key.

In the preferences, I've marked the "Automatically retrieve keys from
key servers" checkbox on the "Key Servers" tab.

GPG works fine in evolution, except that new public keys are not
imported automatically.

The file .gnupg/gpg.conf is empty, except the following line:

It does work as expected if I setup the keyservers and automatical
retrieving manually in .gnugpg/gpg.conf:
keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:11371 ldap://keyserver.pgp.com
keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve
