hey, and thanks for all the info. indeed it only happens in decrypting. and yes, i also use 'throw-keyids' in gpg.conf. while testing by emailing myself : :pubkey enc packet: version 3, algo 1, keyid 0000000000000000 like you said... removing that option , works as expected on decrypting.. :pubkey enc packet: version 3, algo 1, keyid $THE-RIGHT-KEY and the passphrase is asked correctly on decrypting, only for that key.
others had similar effects in tb, i guess we all just copied the throw-keyids tip from somewhere :-) anyway, i guess you can close this one, it is a matter of settings in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf and not a real bug.. thanks, d.
