[Pkg-gnupg-maint] Bug#706919: gpg --no-options doesn't work without ~/.gnupg

Package: gnupg
Version: 1.4.12-7
Severity: normal

The manpage says that --no-options "will also prevent the creation of a
'~/.gnupg' homedir". In fact, if the homedir does not exist, gnupg will exit
with an error when this argument is passed. At least some actions do not
require a homedir so this behavior is strange. For example:

$ gpg --no-options --no-auto-check-trustdb --no-default-keyring --keyring
/usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg --list-key AAAAAAAA
gpg: fatal: /home/wrar/.gnupg: directory does not exist!

Among other things this makes who-uploads say "unrecognised public key" on all
keys without further explanation.
