Thx for your report and sorry for the late reply but I wanted to test
it on one of my older grml installations. It just happens with old
releases and not with the current one. Furthermore the keyring doesn't
get changed too often and it would be complicated to filter rare error
messages. So I think it's not necessary to implement another message
handler and hope it's ok for you to just use the new release ;-)

Great :-)
