That is notation data which is marked critical.  We ignore this
signature becuase we don't know this particualr notaion data and thus
need to honor the critical bit.

Might be a follow-up error.  I'll try to replicate it.

Quite possible, I need to test that as well.

All these problems are platform independent; that is you should see them
also on OS X.  If not, it might be due to problems copying trustdb from
one machine to the other (the FTP thing: binary vs. ascii mode).

Actually, there is no need to copy trustdb, the canonical way is to use

  box-a$ gpg--export-ownertrust >ownertrust.list
  box-a$ scp ownertrust.list box-b:
  box-b$ cd .gnupg
  box-b$ rm trustdb.gpg
  box-b$ gpg --import-ownertrust <~/ownertrust.list



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
