Kleopatra should have created a subkey.  However, it might be possible
to use non-default key parameters which may lead to just one key.  I
have not checked because I do not use Kleopatra myself.  GPA, the other
key manager, has options to create sign-only keys.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
