UI: Unable to proceed after error message when fetching keys

Reported by Dave Evans | July 28th, 2014 @ 11:24 AM | in 1.2 (closed)

GPG-KCA Version 1.1.3 (601)
OSX 10.8.5

Keyserver set as hkp://pgp.uni-mainz.de

After I fetch some keys, an error message window appears saying that some keys
could not be retrieved.


GPG-KCA-> Key -> Search for Key.

Enter the words: > product security <
in the search box

This will bring up a long list of potential keys. Some of them
may even be genuine.

Click on Retrieve

After a few seconds an error message will appear.

It's about 3 inches wide and fills the screen from top to bottom.

The text is "receive keys failed" code 0 Followed by a list of keys.

There is no window close button. All other UI controls are disabled.
There is no way to proceed. Only Force Quit will quit the program.

There are really 2 bugs here. One is why so many keys failed to
fetch. The other is why it is impossible to quit the program gracefully.

UPDATE: This bug may have been fixed in Version 1.1.2 (3772107+) (0n)
compiled from the Git repository.

At least, when fetching keys, it stops after the first error.
Also,you are forced to individually select each key to fetch.

However this version may have another bug if deleting lots of keys in one
go. The window asking you to confirm the deletion may fill the entire
height of the screen, leaving no room for the UI buttons.
